Punky’s Pumpkin Patch is  up and the market has moved to the east side of  Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.  There is easy access from both Old Redwood Highway (Bad Ass Coffee) and Mark West Springs Road.   Plenty of free and easy parking,  follow the signs from the entrances.

Wednesday is going to be another beautiful day in Sonoma County.      Because it is hot, there are  tomatoes and as long as there are tomatoes – the Green Grocer is still serving the Best Ever BLT.  

Rather make your own BLT?  The Wednesday market has everything you need for the perfect BLT.  Tomatoes and lettuce – check out Min Hee Gardens.   Dreamcatcher Ranch has a variety of styles of bacon including nitrate free.  The perfect bread – any of the ones from Full Circle Bakery.  No matter what you bread preference they have it.

The Patch is at the Wednesday market with with  just picke seasonal produce.  If you haven’t had their fresh onions you are missing out on some great flavor.  A fresh red onion slice would make a great addition to a BLT.  The Patch also has peppers, green beans, cucumbers and tomatoes.

Speaking of additions to a BLT  DeSantis has amazing avocados with thin very dark skin.

If you are tired of summer and ready for fall, the market has that too!  Hector’s honey has pumpkins and other squashes including spaghetti squash.   Armstrong Valley Farm has lots of winter greens and kohlrabi – the vegetable that looks like sputnik.     Twin Palms has beautiful peppers but they also have strawberries too.

Fall means pomegranates, pears, and persimmons and nuts.

Ridgeview Farm is now year round at the Wednesday market.  Ridgeview has seasonal fruit and vegetables and the most amazing bouquets.   The hot weather means the zinnias are still available.      Every item they grow is chosen entirely for flavor.   They pick when flavor is at its peak.

The Wednesday market is has everything you need for a great mid-week pick me up.  Including a beautiful spot to sit.

Introducing Physis – your farmer’s market pantry.  He takes what’s available in the market now and turns into the stocks, dressings and other pantry items you wish you had time to make yourself.

The market always has something new

As the seasons change the market changes.    The aroma of roasting peppers leads you to theBeet Generation Farm.  Peppers roasted to order.

Physis Foods opened for the first time at the market,   Serving Roasted Tomato Sauce, Vegetable Stock, Vegetable Soup, two vinaigrettes, kachumber, Salsa Fresca, and more for Saturday! Physis uses  a mobile kitchen on location at the market to create,a variety of staple foods based on produce for sale at the market that very same day. Many of our items either compliment a meal (such as soups, salads, & condiments) or cut steps out of preparation (cut vegetable mixes, stocks, & seasonings.)

 Singing Frogs Farm has something for every season from beautiful strawberries to fall greens, squashes and pumpkins.   They also have wonderful collection of Asian greens and vegetables.

Smashing Juices started at the market this summer.  A nice and easy pick-me-up  by the cup or the jar.

It’s not to early to think about Halloween – our bakers and candy makers will make it a very special time.   Crumb Hither has some beautiful cookies for the season.

Got the mid-week- bored- blues?  the perfect-pick-me-up is the Wednesday morning market at Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

Right now you could call it the  Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich market.    The long torturous wait for local tomatoes is over and now it is time for the BLT

Outdoor tomatoes grown in Sonoma County are here all varieties from early girls to heirloom.     Amazing bacon is available from Dream Catcher Ranch and The Windsor Green Grocer.   Full Circle Bakery has the perfect bread for your BLT – no matter what that choice is.    And while lettuce is often treated as just an accessory, we disagree and think it needs to be crisp and crunchy.  Find your perfect lettuce at Min-Hee Garden.  There are lots of varieties of lettuce in market now.

If you’d rather have someone else make your BLT – we nominate the Windsor Green Grocer.  We believe his BLT belongs in the Sandwich Hall of Fame.  And you can have it during BLT season at the Wednesday morning market.

If you are not a fan of bacon- skip the b and add any number of wonderful seasonal options – cucumbers, gypsy peppers, or try a slice of  perfectly ripe peach!

The Wednesday market has duck eggs, chicken eggs, coffee beans, coffee, coffee drinks, pastries, bread, jams, condiments, beef, duck, pork, bison, salmon, halibut, cod,mushrooms – varieties of fresh and died, honey, beeswax products,seasonal produce and fruit .   Wednesday only vendor Ridgeview Farm has the most beautiful seasonal bouquets and full bunches of zinnias.

There are also handcrafted soaps, unique jewelry and items crafted from old silverware, and beautiful hand-sewn napkins, shirts and more.

Opening Day photograph by Tom Burnside

            

 

To our loyal customers,

We were faced with many tough decisions this year.   On opening day, May 19th, we were nervous but there you were and now we want to thank you for all your support.

Please come to our Grand Opening Party this Saturday June 30th 8:30 am to 1 pm. All the vendors have donated wonderful raffle prizes and the more you shop the more chances you have to win.

Lots for children:  Julian The Santa Rosa Magician and Dr. Pop of the clever balloon-art will be entertaining.  The Boys and Girls Club will have a booth.

Lots for adults too: three  chef’s demonstrations (tastings included) and KRSO radio personalities John Ash, Steve Garner and Dave Fazzio will be on hand.

Manager’s  Pick

Welcome our newest vendor:  John Legros, son of Dave Legros, will host a stall with fresh wild salmon, wild Gulf shrimp ,flounder, scallops and much more.

Evidence of summer is everywhere even a Sonoma grown tomato or two if you get there early and look in the right place (Redwood Empire Farm.)

If you are thinking about potato salad, stop by Canvas Ranch, Armstrong Valley Farm or Ma and Pa’s — they are each growing different varieties of potatoes and are happy to tell you why they have the best one for potato salad.

If you have company for the July 4th weekend and you want to give them an easy walking tour of Sonoma County, bring them to the market.  We have a mini-cheese trail , the most small Sonoma County farmers, and the all of our meat, poultry and fish vendors will be on hand, even Wednesday regular The Dreamcatcher Ranch.

A special shout-out to Libby Batzel of Beet Generation Farm for organzing our Grand Opening Celebration.
