At the beginning of this month's Jane cover profile 'The Unstoppable Charm of Zooey Deschanel', writer Shelly Ridenour finds herself with the actress at a farmer's market. It's crowded, cluttered with street musicians and "family-run cheesy" but it's also "shiny" and "fresh" and "a little bit too predictable." Sort of, we might venture to say, like Zooey Deschanel, whose stubborn quirkiness is starting to make us wish she'd find a narcotic to abuse. But gosh! Such a cute dresser! (Seriously!) After the jump, all the actress' quirky attributes as pounded into our heads by Jane magazine.
