November 16th vendors list

Thankgiving is two Wednesday markets and one Saturday market away.
There is a market the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. All of our markets are amazing.
If you haven’t tried the Wednesday market, come on by – a fabulous selection of local produce in fact you won’t find a better choice anywhere. The market will be open the day before Thanksgiving.
Produce includes Hector’s Honey, Min-Hee Hill Gardens, Scheletewiz Family Farm, Bohemian Well Being Farm, The Patch, Tierra Vegetables, Ridgeview and Humble Roots.
It’s fall now and the Wednesday market has new crop, freshly dug potatoes – all sizes and types, onions, garlic, winter squash, lots of varieties of winter greens, lovely mix salad greens, micro-greens and sprouts, persimmons and grapes and until the first frost beautiful zinnias in fall colors.
The Wednesday market has lots of things to make your life easier at Thanksgiving or any day of the week. Physis Foods is like your own pantry – check out their soup stocks – gravy made delicious and easy. Full Circle Bakery has wonderful breads including a fabulous focaccia and dinner rolls.
Think outside the box for Thanksgiving. One family solved its diverse dietary needs and desires by having the traditional side dishes but going to the coast for a BBQ and everyone brings what they want to grill. It solves a myriad of Thanksgiving dilemmas

This is a good time to think ahead to winter and spring.
My Wild Iris Rows is having a sale. Daffodils, Dahlias, Lilies Oh My is the place to order bulk bulbs for fall planting. Savita will help you to pick the perfect daffodil that will naturailze. Nature’s Spirit has hardy greens for your fall and winter vegetable garden. Angie from Nut n Other and EGB both have unpastuerized almonds from this year’s crop. Karlonas Farms features quail — easy, fast and so good.

Lots of tomatoes great case prices! All the tomatoes from the Heirloom tasting are available at the market. The easiest way to save some tomatoes for the dark days of winter is put a bunch on a cookie sheet and freeze them. Once frozen just put them in a freezer and take them out as you want them. As they thaw, the skin slips off.

This weekend the market is Sunday January 20th instead of Saturday.   If you are hosting a 49’er party – you can pick up wonderful no hassle game day party food.   If you could care less about football, the market is located at the gateway to wine country – kick-off a tour with a great farm market breakfast.

EGB has wonderful fresh fruit but be sure and sample the flavored almonds — tequila lime is great.

A new and very popular item is the ice box pie from The Green Grocer.   Bring this pie to a game day party and you will be invited back every time.

Penang Kitchen specializing in Malaysian Street Food is worth a try.  They are introducing new things all the time.  Last week they introduced a variety of  satays  and they are all good.  The sauce is spicy and full of flavor.

Mi Fiesta can be a one-stop for all your party needs– chips, salsas, rice, beans, enchiladas, tamales — pretty much everything but the beer.

Our farmers, ranchers,chefs and artisans are ready to serve you.  They welcome special orders.  You can find their contact information here. 











The market will relocate  to the South Parking Lot of Luther Burbank Center for the Arts as of January 12th.

A lot of people want to ‘eat local’  but find it difficult especially in the winter months.    Sonoma County offers year-round good eating.

Our farmers are the Picasso’s of produce.    Piles of colorful carrots, beets, cabbages; citrus, persimmons , hearty greens are common themes – it’s when you take a closer look the farmer’s individuality comes out.

Mache (a cold hardy lettuce,) stinging nettles, celery root, Jerusalem artichokes, fresh cascabel peppers, the first leeks, fennel bulbs, tiny brussel sprouts, the first tender shoots of rhubarb and Bearss limes are all to be found at this Saturday market, all grown in Sonoma County.  Most of our farmers are within 10 miles of  Luther Burbank Center for the Arts.

The Sonoma County high  school students refurbish bicycles and sell them.  This Wednesday you can buy one at the Wednesday market.  Get a great bike for between $30 and $50.      Plenty of room to test drive.

The Wednesday market is a great place for holiday shopping.    This weekly pop-up plaza brings the best of Sonoma County for mid-week shoppers.     There are wonderful hand-crafted scarves, shirts, napkins, jewelry.  For the chefs and enthusiastic eaters on your list – great choices abound.

For on the spot eating, great farm market breakfasts from the Green Grocer or from Mi Fiesta a tamale treat.   Gaga Cafe is pouring wonderful coffees and the beans make a great gift.   Full Circle Bakery and Good Gal Bakery have the perfect pastry for everyone from bear-claws to scones.

Only two more markets until Christmas but our vendors invite special orders, please check the vendors list for contact information.










No oyster is the same at any one time of year. How it tastes – how fat, how briny, how big or small – depends on its own reproductive cycle, and on the cycles of the climate.

Cold weather is good for oysters!

The holiday season arrives and so do the oysters! For many oysters are a holiday tradition – they may take many different forms: oyster stew, raw oysters, oyster shots.

Bumblebee Seafood has local oysters and crab.  They also have salmon and cod.  If you are looking for something special — just ask.   Saturday market.
