every week

Where the soup comes from. The weekend farmers market.



This fall I started going to the farmers market every week. Usually by bike, and sometimes meeting my friend Luis. This beautifully arranged stall is where I stop first to pick up turnips, carrots with their leaves still attached, green and red peppers, yuzu, lemons, celery, and sweet potatoes. At United Nations University farmers market, in Aoyama, which is open every Saturday and Sunday.

White board at building entrance informs residents about daily schedule


I am amazed at how organized the painters are, and how clearly they communicate to the residents. This handy white board is updated every week.
