The Wednesday market is a pop-up community:
A great coffee shop Gaga Cafe; one of the best farm to table chefs in the county — the Green Grocer; pastries from Full Circle and live music from Hank Levine.

Of course our two block neighborhood has some great shopping

Our produce people have a great array of Sonoma grown produce just picked. Tomatoes, cucumbers, fresh onions, berries of all kinds, peppers, melons, lettuce, greens, potatoes, and Min Hee might have some corn…and so much more.

You can also buy beautiful, clever cards using the art of quilling..usually get to see a demonstration as well. You can get your knives sharpened, buy a really cool shirt, find the perfect scented candle and more.

Meat, fish, eggs, cheese, wonderful teas, bottled grape juices and more.

There is now a whole lot more the Wednesday market.

Manager’s Pick
Right now it has to be the red and the yellow cherries! So juicy and tasty.

A perfect balance of sweet and tart, cherries are juicy and give a little snap when you bite into them, also delivering a dose of potassium, vitamin C and fiber. Though you may find tart or sour cherries in farmers’ markets, the most common varieties are sweet cherries, such as yellow Rainier and dark red Bing cherries

They have a short season. 10 ways to save some cherry goodness.

Ponce/EGB Farms and Busalacchi have cherries.
