Hooray Hooray the 1st of May — It’s national salad day and the Wednesday market

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.
