There is no better place to celebrate National Salad Day then the Wednesday market. (May is national salad month) A wonderful selection of Sonoma grown produce and plenty of fixins’ to add to your salad bowl.

Spring is lettuce season and our Wednesday farmers have a wonderful selection. You can find the perfect lettuce for sandwiches, salad bowls or even for wraps. Some lettuces can even be sauteed.

The Wednesday market has wonderful offerings for a great market meal. The Green Grocer makes magic on a plate (real china) for a wonderful farm market breakfast. If you want something that shows of Sonoma County, you cannot do better than the Green Grocer (described as the love child of the French Laundry and Whole Foods) Everything served by the Green Grocer is sourced within 150 miles but most of it comes from the market that morning.

People are always complaining about the lack of street food – Penang Kitchen is at the Wednesday market serving Malaysian Street food, considered by some to be among the finest in the world. It’s a wonderful blend of spices some dishes have a bit of heat. They have vegetarian options. The potato curry should be on everyone’s list to try.

Mi Fiesta serves up one of the great, fast and cheap lunches. You can get a tamale with the works (your choices of salsas and other toppings) for $3.00. And of course they have lots of choices to take home enchildas, tamales, salsas, and their new line of individual dinners.

If you love the bouquets from Ridgeview Farm, then you have to come to the Wednesday market. During the summer, Ridgeview is only at the Wednesday market.

Here’s what Franco Dunn, One World Sausage Company said about Gusto Pasta
“Greetings! I have sold my sausages at the Santa Rosa Farmers market for quite some time. This Saturday I bought a meat lasagna from the Gusto pasta people. This was their first day as vendors. I cooked in Italy for three years and have been a chef for over thirty years. The lasagna was fabulous. These people are a welcome addition to our market!”

Radishes can be so much more than a garnish. Famous chefs are finding creative ways to use them. Spring is radish season although they are available through-out the year.
Ridgeview Farm has beautiful French breakfast radishes -named for their use sliced on buttered bread with a sprinkle of salt.

Michael Bauer, SF Chronicle Food critic on the radish “Most people don’t think of the typical radish as a vegetable. It’s repeatedly — and unfortunately — relegated to a garnish, but when it’s sauteed it enhances many dishes with its firm texture and spicy taste” Recipes and ideas

Ridgeview Farm is at the Wednesday market with beautiful radishes and lettuces and of course their seasonal bouquets.

Local Spicery has joined the Wednesday line-up. Fresh dried herbs and spices in the quantities you need.

Dreamcatcher Ranch produces meats from heritage breeds humanely raised.

The Wednesday market has the largest selection of Sonoma grown produce anywhere with the exception of the Saturday market.

Don’t forget our great food court – eat-in, take-out or pick something up for later.

This week Salmon Creek Ranch the Edgeworks knife sharpening are also at the Wednesday market.
