Aug 12, 2009: Farmer's Market
Farmer's markets are wonderful. All those fruits, veggies, and sometimes flowers, honey or dairy, fresh from the farm.

OH CRAP HERE COMES THE TRAIN!!!!

Grilled veggies, anyone??

If I was there, some of them veggies would be put on the rails, just before the train comes.

This would never work in the lawsuit-happy U.S.A.

No, some drunken dumbass would stand in front of the train and then sue somebody while they scramble to find their missing body parts.

There's a section in one of Michael Palin's travel documentaries that reminds me of this a little. He's travelling between Chile and Bolivia, and the train is running very, very late.

Finally a way to "train" your vegetables.

Some of those veggies can be tough, so remember to choo-choo your food.

Wouldn't that make all of the veggies.......squash?

They have their market here for the benefit of tourists who like to come and take photos of their market. Otherwise, why wouldn't they just move to one side or the other and get off the freakin' tracks?!?

And here I thought the difference was that in Thailand you can buy little girls in pink dresses in their Farmers' Markets. Stupid me.

"Even if they don’t hit you like a freight train, the environmental messages of the railway track market of Samut Songkhram are certainly there to be chewed over."
