Ridgeview Farm is only at the Wednesday market.  If they were the only vendor it would be worth coming.     Known for the beautiful seasonal bouquets – right now Zinnias, they also have corn, melons, lettuces, french breakfast radishes.   Many heirloom varieties , always picked the peak of flavor.

Penny Royal Farm/Navarro Winery is another Wednesday only vendor.   They have a wide variety of vinegars, ver jus , wine and cheeses.  Their blue cheese is wonderful.

Bohemian Wellbeing Farm has the best selection of cultivated and foraged mushrooms any day of the week.    Full Circle Bakery has great breads and pastries.  Waterhorse Ridge has jams, jellies, condiments and other preserved fruit.   You can find a plain strawberry or grape jelly but it’s the combinations of flavors that will intrigue your palate.   Savory jars of things too — not too mention salsa that are downright hot.

Gaga Cafe and the Green Grocer are here for a great cup of coffee and one of the greatest BLT’s of all time — and that’s even when tomatoes are out of season.  Now they are beyond wonderful.

Garden Massage has joined the Wednesday line-up and the chair massage is perfect for a quick fix in the middle of the week.

After your massage – the best BLT ever from The Green Grocer or pick up the supplies to make it at home. Tomatoes- Parsons Homegrown, bread- from Full Circle Bakery, and your choice of lettuce depending upon what you like our farmers have a lot of different lettuce varieties. The Dreamcatcher Ranch has a bunch of different kinds of bacon – sliced thick or thin and with and without nitrates and some different cures.

Do some leisurely shopping for Mom. Willow Design has beautiful bracelets made by recycling silverware. The Garden Wild has handcrafted soaps and lotion. The scents are wonderful. If your Mom is a foodie check out the jams from Waterhorse Ridge. It’s the combination of flavors that really stand out. She has sweet and savory and new things all the time. These are the ingredients that become the base of your soon-to-be-famous BBQ sauce.

Our farmers bring the best selection of Sonoma-grown fruit and vegetables. Even though the Wednesday market is smaller, the variety of produce is still excellent and it’s all local.

This week Edgework Knife Sharpening is at the Wednesday market. Your Mom would love you best if you got her knives and garden tools sharpened.

Duck eggs at the Wednesday market too.

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.

Last minutes Valentine’s Day gifts that make you look like you have been planning forever.

A lot of people think any food prepared by someone else is an aphrodisiac

Get a jump start on Valentine’s Day and bring your sweetie to the Wednesday market for the best breakfast and it all happens to be local.   You can also buy the ingredients for the same great breakfast.

The ingredients for a great breakfasts (in bed or otherwise) are all at the Wednesday market.    Including the beans to make great coffee at home  from Gaga Cafe.   Old school breakfast for your sweeties – sausage, ham, bacon, eggs, toast.    Sounds like any old breakfast until you use ingredients all produced within 150 miles of the market.   Somethings, like Parsons Homegrown, and Hector’s honey are less than three miles from Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

Something a little simpler but just as good –Any bread from Full Circle with any jam from Waterhorse Ridge  would be sublime

Good Gal Delights has wonderful treats -” Mindfully healthy, always Delicious. “Have Your Cake and Eat it too!”

Think about this – a basket of beautiful tomatoes from Parsons Homegrown – big, red, juicy tomatoes and for someone you aren’t quite sure about they have some lovely yellow tomatoes too.

And what about a bouquet of beets — Tom Robbins in both Even Cowgirls Get the Blues and Jitterbug Perfume celebrates the power of the beat.

“The beet is the most intense of vegetables. The radish, admittedly, is more feverish, but the fire of the radish is a cold fire, the fire of discontent not of passion. Tomatoes are lusty enough, yet there runs through tomatoes an undercurrent of frivolity. Beets are deadly serious…”

And if it’s baby lettuce party – Min-Hee Hill Gardens has beautiful greens and have recently added dried pepper blends — an easy way to liven up the party.

If it’s just not Valentine’s Day unless it’s heart-shaped — The Garden Wild has wonderful heart shaped soaps and bath bombs.  Willow Design has wonderful heart-shapes in bracelets and earrings.

And if you just can’t decide what would be  perfect  —  a gift certificate from the market might just be the ticket.
