Am I in Havana or Manhattan? How Farmers Markets Supply Local Color
June 23, 2015
I love farmers markets: the colors, the bicycles, the social milieu, the farmers, the restauranteurs buying produce. My Moon PR office was located at Union Square West in New York City for 20 years, the site of the Union Square Greenmarket. I’ve had nearly 7,000 days strolling through Union Square on the lookout for dinner and friendly banter. When I travel, I always search out the farmer’s markets for some local color. The Project of Public Places, a nonprofit devoted to placemaking, found that a farmers market customer has an average number of 15-20 social interactions versus 1-2 at a grocery store.
On my recent trip to Cuba, I visited the farmers market in Old Havana and have included pictures from both the Union Square Greenmarket in New York City and the Havana market. See if you can tell which photos are from which place.
Many images are taken with the iPhone 6plus. Some are taken with the Canon EOS 5D MarkIII.
