Rubbing up to Hippies, Shamans and Rastas at the Green Festival recently in San Francisco

Friday, November 20th, 2009

It was a yummy few hours I spent in the company of many wonderfully colorful and friendly people. This festival is one of my favorites because it’s small, authentic and just so interesting. Young and old entrepreneurs show their new products, some only one, others many, in the hopes of launching a solid business for themselves. The biggest change I noticed, from other years, was the proliferation of hemp and organic clothing lines, and how much cooler looking they are getting and more diverse as well.

I was of course, drawn to the beautiful herbs and mushroom vendors, and the very pleasing rustic displays of their wares, as well as a large artwork made out of recycled trash by a very creative guy.
