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!

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.



If you missed the Saturday market, you missed these key lime tarts from Crumb Hither.

The origin of Key lime pie has been traced back to the late 19th century in the Key West, Florida area. Its exact origins are unknown, but the first formal mention of Key Lime Pie as a recipe may have been made by William Curry, a ship salvager and Key West’s first millionaire; his cook, “Aunt Sally,” made the pie for him. If such is the case, however, it is also possible and maybe even probable that Sally adapted the recipe already created by local sponge fishermen. Sponge fishermen spent many contiguous days on their boats, and stored their food on board, including nutritional basics such as canned milk (which would not spoil without refrigeration), limes and eggs. Sponge fishermen on the sea would presumably not have access to an oven, and, similarly, the original recipe for key lime pie did not call for cooking the mixture of lime, milk, and eggs. (read more from Wikipedia)

The first recipe for key lime pie was recorded in the 1930s and it is the state pie of Florida.    Here’s a list of other state’s official foods.    While California doesn’t have an official pie – following the Florida designation of  a state pie, we had a state mock pie contest.

What do you think should be the California State Pie…..or even the Sonoma County pie?
