Re: Mixed Vegetable Festivals
The carrots were kind of wacky. It was really just a market, a lot bigger than the normal markets, but I'd say it was about 10% carrot-related, 90% non-carroty. There were carrot cakes, carrot soup, carrot bread, carrot decorations (made of both real and fake carrots), carrot art, carrots, carrot crepes, carrot cheese, and even the odd stall-holder dressed as a carrot (which was great). It was fun, but not necessarily the best vegetable festival opportunity. And I still don't know anything about the history behind it.
