Welcome Summer: hello fruit!

The market is a sea of beautiful summer fruit.   Apricots and cherries are nearing the end of their season but peaches and plums are just reaching their peak.

The market has strawberries – all sizes, blueberries, raspberries,ollaberries and boysenberries.    Lots of different varieties too.  Thinking about preserving some of this summer goodness?  Ask the farmers about quantity discounts.  Special orders welcomed.

Take a cooking class

A fun and inspiring activity you can do alone or in a group is take a cooking class.  Ramekins has many wonderful choices and the focus is always on Sonoma produced ingredients.  Relish in Healdsburg is a culinary destination with many classes with a Sonoma focus.

Twin Peaks has returned with their wonderful and much in demand summer fruit.   Summer fruit is everywhere and if you are looking for an easy delicious way to serve it –Greek yogurt from Bobby’s Ultimate Souvlaki is the way to go.

You’ve heard it before but…really this is the most amazing yogurt.   Bobby serves it with a variety of toppings for snacking at the market but you can get it plain and you only need a little to change fresh fruit into a dessert worthy of a special occasion.   Even if you think you know what someone sells — it is always worth a second look.  Our chefs are always trying something new.  Shown here with elderbroch peach jam from Patricia Greer’s Waterhorse Ridge Jams and Condiments.   By themselves each of our vendors is great but when they get together — wow.
