Saturday was our 45th birthday.  We had cake and a lot of fun.

The market received a letter from someone else who had a great time on Saturday.    They especially enjoyed the lovely location and places to relax and enjoy yourself.   Even children have a good time.

Dear Santa Rosa Farmers Market coordinators and vendors at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts,

My name is Erica Wheeler and I grew up in Larkfield, California just down the street from the Luther Burbank Center.  One of my favorite parts about growing up in the area was the community that surrounded me everywhere I went.  To this day, now that I have moved to San Francisco for college, that sense of community is what I miss most.  As the world gets busier and people have less time even the strongest communities feel the strain, which is why what you do at the Luther Burbank Center Farmers Market (and everywhere else too!) is so important.  Just this past weekend my mom and I and my 5 year old cousin came to the farmers market and spent the morning meeting new people, playing in the grass and the play structure and eating breakfast together.  It was one of those rare and perfect days where time passes slowly and people really enjoy themselves.  My cousin, a native San Franciscan had the best time, and I was thrilled to be able to show her a slower pace and all of the other exciting things the market has to offer.  Thank you to each of you for making these special memories possible.  Thank you for rebinding our communities together and reminding us what’s important every weekend.  My family and I so appreciate what you do and I wanted to thank you for that.  See you again soon!
