Alma’s Oil Cloth and Chucharias is having a sale on Day of the Dead decorations.

Of course there are pumpkins all sizes shapes and colors everywhere at the market

Gandalf’s Fine Chocolates has creepy( in a good way) chocolate skulls but also some things for trick or treaters…well trick or treaters you like a lot.

Twin Palms Ranch is now at the Saturday market.

Jim and Dave (Sonoma Coast Organics) – the chestnut guys are back for their very short season.  They also have quince and chanterelles -if there are any.

It’s an exciting time at the market as it finally becomes fall and the market is full of peppers, pears, pomegranates,apples and all the fall greens and vegetables.  But there are a still signs that summer isn’t completely gone.  Min Hee Garden, The Patch and Armstrong Valley Farm still have tomatoes.  Min Hee also has cucumbers and they always have beautiful lettuce.   Depending on the micro-climate a few farmers still have berries.
