Saturday Farmer’s Market in Ashland, Oregon

Saturday morning in Ashland! Farmer’s market downtown on Oak Street between Lithia and Main. Unfortunately, I got there late and the market was closing. I did get some good pics, but didn’t get to shop at all…

Anti-GMO Protest on the Plaza

I love Ashland! Around the corner from the Farmer’s Market on the Plaza, there was an Anti-GMO protest in progress. I definitely had to check it out.

There was an angry Hippie in overalls with a guitar yelling into the “open” microphone:

There were 15 groups represented and information tables with sign up sheets, petitions, and stuff for sale (donations). Lots of people were gathered both as participants and spectators. It was very reminiscent of Santa Cruz in the 1980’s.
