So I just went to the first outdoor farmer's market of the year. This town has (or had - hard to tell what things will be like from here on) the second-largest market in Wisconsin, after the insane one in Madison, and some Saturdays they've supposedly had 5,000 visitors, pretty good for a 2 1/2 block market with just over 100 vendors in a city with under 40k people - and a fairly economically depressed city at that. Sure was different this year, in part because COVID and in part because they opted to start up in early May rather than late, I guess to hopefully give a leg up to some struggling local farmers, vendors, shops. I got there towards the end of it so not many shoppers but it was a sorry sight in any case with no more than 25 vendors selling - not much. Beginning of May there isn't much local produce available - rhubard and scallions are just about it - and not having a garden space, the sellers of potted plants weren't getting my business, nor do I care much for the trinkets or soaps which always make up a good chunk of the sellers early in the season. But even the vendors of meat, dairy, honey and maple syrup were sparse and not selling much it seemed; not sure if this says anything definite about the economic outlook in this area but I expected a little bit more action. I almost left without buying anything but at last minute decided to get a jar of salsa - I'm usually a hummus on chips guy but what the hell, why not. In any case I hope there's a little more going on by next weekend, and that I manage to get there earlier.

Oh and I thought my local movie theater was gone for good, but driving by I saw a "re-opening" sign. Somebody with some money behind that I think - it was struggling hard even before the pandemic. But still good news I think, though I don't see myself going back there often even after I finally get vaccinated, unless they really improve the way they run the place.
