There are no winter doldrums at the Saturday market. St Rose Winery and Cook’s Spices bring something new and exciting to the market.

St Rose is a pioneer is selling wine at the Farmers Market. As well as wine for drinking they offer a special cooking wine. You can taste a wonderful cherry and wine sauce and get the recipe. It would be perfect with duck from Salmon Creek Ranch.
Rick and Wendy Nunes are the wine makers and happy to spend time talking about their wines.

Cook’s Spices has a wonderful array of spices. Kim (whose maiden name is Cook) has developed a number of special blends but is happy to work with customers if they don’t see what they want. Everything is packaged beautifully but with the cook in mind. These are items you will want to buy for yourself but would also make great gifts.

What’s new at the Saturday Market?




Tierra Vegetables from Healdsburg has joined the Saturday Market. As well as seasonal produce Tierra Vegetables
veget has a wide variety of dried beans and chilis, many unusual heirloom varieties.

If you bean usage is limited to red, white and black – this is a chance to change it up.

Shopping is hard work and now you can reward yourself with the same great beignets
from the Wednesday night market. Louisana Legacy fries them up on the spot.

Deb Bachman of the Sweet Factor looks at all the beautiful produce especially greens in the market this time of year. Then she turns them into pesto and other versatile products. Right now she has stinging nettle pesto –better than a boatload of kale!

“It’s ironic that many of the scariest, non-certified organic foods are labeled “natural” — a term that could not mean less, or mislead more. Like “home-style” or “old-fashioned,” the label “natural” can mean whatever the labeler wants it to mean. You could put “natural” on a lab-grade jar of MSG crystals, or on a packet of 10-year-old Twinkies, without violating any law. And all too often it’s the companies playing the “natural” card that are doing the most unnatural things to your food.”
