John Cain  is the pit master and his passion for great BBQ is evident.  John participated in the BBQ circuit and now brings his award winning ‘que to the market on Saturdays.

You can eat it there or take some home.   If your Dad is a BBQ fan – get some for Father’s Day!

Everyone who has tried it has come back for more.    We heard one kid quietly whisper to his Mom “better than Dad’s!”

Ribs, chicken, brisket and smoked cinnamon buns.   The sauce is wonderful full of flavor but won’t set your mouth on fire.   A lot of care goes into preparing everything for the smoker – the chicken is brined to keep it moist.   Everything is sourced locally.

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.

This week the Wednesday market welcomes back Mi Fiesta – wonderful tamales and enchiladas.   Sylvia has something new:  the “grab and go”  — easy to use for lunch or dinner – either cheese or chicken enchiladas with rice and beans.  Easy to reheat!   Pick up a bunch for the gang for lunch for dinner.

Penang Kitchen is now a regular at the Wednesday market featuring Malaysian street food.  Considered by some to be the best street food around.  They are currently serving Malaysian Chicken Rice along with their regular menu (rice noodle dishes vegetarian choice too.)

The Green Grocer menu reflects the amazing diversity of Sonoma County farmers and ranchers.  If you haven’t had his crispy duck tacos with a seasonal sauce, you are missing one of the great tastes!

All three of these vendors sell  the sauces and other ingredients of their great dishes so you can  create at home.   Mi Fiesta has a more then just red and green salsas including many that are seasonal.   Penang Kitchen is selling their peanut sauce and coconut jam and the Green Grocer has wonderful cured pork products to take home.

Wednesday the weather is going to be absolutely fabulous.  Perfect for breakfast or lunch at the market.  Come and shop at our beautiful market (and we aren’t just a pretty face.)   Treat yourself to the great tastes of Sonoma.
