One of our favorite things to do on an early Saturday morning (besides a bike ride) is going to the Irvine Farmers' Market. It's quite big and has a great selection of fruit, vegetables, breads, meats, fish, wares, etc.
Yesterday, we went later than usual - around 10 am - and had to compete with the stroller brigade and slow-moving septuagenarians. (Where are the death panels when you need them?) But I still managed to stock up on some glorious sweet green figs and concord grapes.
On the way out I noticed a guy wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with Dear Leader's face with the caption "Stop Lying". That made me chuckle. Turns out that he is right at home in the Irvine Farmers' Market. That's 'cos the organizer of several Orange County Farmers' Markets is a dyed-in-the-wool Republican!

I wonder how many Irvine liberals skipped their weekend trip to Whole Foods and instead patronized the Farmers' Market in an attempt to funnel their dollars towards someone who shares their values.
