Hyde Park's weak hippie

The sign on an empty storefront announces that "In a few weeks there will be a fruit and vegetable store here." Below are sheets of paper with an invitation to make your desires and preferences known.

Someone requested varieties of that comfort fruit/vegetable, cheesecake. To clarify, "vegan" is penciled in nearby.

Another soul would like "bears, coyotes" to be sold. Someone helpfully noted that these items are "not vegan!"

One person would like to buy "ORGANIC—LOCAL!" Someone pointed to this request with an arrow and editorialized, one imagines somewhat sadly, "You're a weak hippie." Is this because the first writer is not fortified with pesticides and growth hormones?
