The Wednesday market is now held in the South Parking Lot.

Did you see  the story in the Wall Street Journal about Hector and his bees…”Mr. Alvarez is the founder of Hector’s Honey, based on a 2-acre farm in the tiny hamlet of Fulton, Calif. It has won gold medals and best-of-show ribbons at the annual Sonoma County Harvest Fair and is sought out by connoisseurs who crave its delicate sweetness.

“It has a nice floral flavor that goes well with cheeses,” says Andrew Di Clementi, a pastry chef at the acclaimed Dry Creek Kitchen in nearby Healdsburg, who buys honeycomb from Hector’s.

Mr. Alvarez is a leader in the growing artisanal food movement, teaching and mentoring other beekeepers on how to produce honey naturally, with minimum exposure to pesticides.”

But there is more at Hector’s Honey then honey.   Right now Hector has fresh,chili peppers –   anaheims , cayannes and cascabels….not too mention wonderful varieties of winter squash

One of the newer Wednesday vendors is Good Gal Delights.   This is someone who clearly loves to bake and really thinks about new flavor combinations –coming up this week gluten free- blueberry coconut muffins.    Gaga Cafe is there to provide the coffee to go with that muffin.

Other Wednesday vendors include:  Full Circle Baking Company, Waterhorse Ridge Jams and condiments, The Dreamcatcher Ranch (heritage beef, lamb, goat and pork,) Mi Fiesta Tamales and more, The Green Grocer, The Garden Wild and Willow Designs.   Armstrong Valley has fresh chicken eggs and produce and Bohemian Well Being Farm has the best array of cultivated and wild mushrooms at any local farmers market.
