We chatted, learned about the vendors and their products, indulged in some free samples, and tried to stay relatively try. Tomiyama-san, the Earth Day Market manager, paused in his full rain suit to welcome us and chat for a moment before bustling off to help finish setting up tents and strategize about keeping things dry. Business was brisk despite the weather, and I can only imagine what it would have been if the sun had been shining. We grabbed yummy lunches from the handful of food carts there to talk and laugh together some more. A good day, if I do say so myself.
If lack of a wet suit kept you away, never fear. I plan on doing another soon. Stay tuned!
