From the Press Democrat

http://www.pressdemocrat.com/lifestyle/3243606-181/sr-original-market-says-thanks?page=0

On Saturday, December 20, the Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market hosts a Customer and Vendor Appreciation Day. It is a way for the market to say thank you to everyone involved in the market for helping make 2014 a success in the market’s new and likely permanent home on the west side of the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

Several market vendors will contribute to a buffet table filled with nibbles, offered to anyone without charge. Among the selections will be paella from Cesar’s Bone Broth; vegetable soup from Zuppa; artisan breads from Costeaux French Bakery, Full Circle Baking and Raymond’s Bakery; Ann’s Pesto Pasta from Willow Designs; Min Hee’s green salad and much more.

Hourly drawings will pair a customer with a vendor for special discounts, an effort to introduce customers to unfamiliar vendors.

Oliver the Balloon Guy, dancers and musicians will also participate in the fun.

The buffet will probably get started about 10 a.m., after the first wave of serious shopper who arrive right at 8:30 has ebbed.

As of press time, it was impossible to share for certain exactly which farmers would participate, as many fields were still flooded and growers had yet to assess their crops. Some who farm in low-lying areas could be done for the season and those who sustained wind damage may or may not be ready to return. Even so, it should be a bustling market, as the Saturday markets before a major holiday always are. There will be plenty of winter greens for salads, soups, stir-fries and braiseds; all manner of root vegetables, from carrots, radishes and beets to potatoes, sweet potatoes, celery root, parsnips and the unusual yacon, which EarthWorker Farm has begun harvesting.

There will be plenty of citrus, walnuts, almonds, pomegranates, persimmons, apples, apple juice, fresh flowers, dried flowers, salad greens, organic spices, spice blends, organic farro, local shell beans, shallots, onions, garlic, mushrooms, winter squash and a few straggling remnants of late summer and fall.

There should be eggs, too, though remember that many hens stop laying at this time of year; if you need eggs, shop early or risk disappointment.

Not Yer Mama’sGranola attends and now offers its delicious blends in bulk.

Salmon Creek Ranch attends this market with their popular duck eggs, pet treats, goat and beef. Other protein vendors include Pepper Ranch Poultry;l John Ford Ranch, which has beef; Oz Family Farm, which has rabbit; Bellwether Farm has delicious cheese and voluptuous yogurt and Williams Ranches, purveyors of outstanding lamb.

The market has great coffee, fabulous teas from Pure Puer-and many delicious foods to enjoy on the spot. At this time of year, they typically have more than the usual number of craft vendors, too, which makes for great holiday shopping. However, some craft vendors do not attend if it is raining, as their products are often vulnerable to water damage.

There are several more markets before Christmas, one in Sonoma Valley on Friday, two others in Santa Rosa on Saturday morning–Santa Rosa Community Market at the Vets Building and the Oakmont Farmers Market in Oakmont–the Sebastopol Farmers Market on Sunday and both the Santa Rosa Original Farmers Market and the Santa Rosa Community Farmers Market on Christmas Eve morning. There is plenty of time to put together an all-local holiday meal, no matter what it is that you celebrate.

The market is currently managed by Pegi Ball of Pegi Ball Catering, who assumed the position on November 1, after Jaimes Smedes resigned.

The Santa Rosa Original Certified Farmers Market, founded in 1978 takes place from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays and from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays year round in the west side parking lot of the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts, 50 Mark West Spring Rd.

Help End Hunger in Sonoma County

 

forkandbottle

 

 

There are over 80,000 people in Sonoma County who aren’t able to get enough to eat on

 

their own.

 

The Redwood Empire Food Bank’s goal is to end hunger in Sonoma County.

 

They are not a one size fits all program but offer many ways to serve those living with

 

food insecurity.

 

Until recently food programs depended largely on canned and dry goods.  Now through

 

innovative programs, they are able to offer fresh fruits and vegetables.

 

The market’s initiative is to help our farmers and ranchers increase their contributions to

 

ending hunger in Sonoma County.

 

Every week  the market collects contributions and delivers them to the Redwood Empire Food Bank.  It’s hard to imagine people are hungry in Sonoma County looking at what is Sonoma

grown.  We are doing our best to share what we grow.

 

At this time of year, there is a lot of attention on holiday dinners for the homeless

Let’s tackle this problem year-round.  We urge everyone to get involved in ending hunger in Sonoma County.
