SANTA ROSA FARMERS MARKET


We continue our meat adventure with a smile on our face and a vehicle that smells like fresh focaccia. Our next destination is the Santa Rosa farmers market. Santa Rosa is located about an hour from the Bay Area in Sonoma County. Sonoma County is famous for its agriculture and the growing of premium wine grapes. This farmers market has a good representation of the County’s food and vegetable bounty. The market is located in the parking lot at the ‘Veterans Memorial Auditorium’ across from the fair grounds. We would like to share a couple of pictures of our adventure.



If you need a java fix, you will have several choices. ‘Gaga Café’ has a slow drip method to produce a fine cup of Joe. ‘Run Around Brew’ has a more traditional take on your morning caffeine jolt.



If you need some hot sauce, Larry from Peppahead is in the house. He has spices, rubs, and sauces for the timid palette all the way to the full blown Chilehead. Larry is very knowledgeable in all things Chile and will take care of all your pepper needs. If you have a hankering for some spicy Latin food “Mateo Granado’ runs a food truck. Check out their house hot sauce. It will warm your socks.



The seed exchange booth caught our attention. I think it is a great idea to exchange extra seeds. How many zucchini seeds does one need?



We bought several items and headed back to our vehicle. Our adventure was not done. Our breakfast was a fond memory and we needed to refuel. It is off to the ‘Washoe House in Petaluma. Stay tuned!

Looks like fun and I see a Buddha's Hand citrus there - wish I had gotten that one! I'm still looking for a Buddha's Hand tree.

Zoomie, I know you would like this market. Buddha's hand can be bought at all the big box hardware/garden supply stores. Navalet's will have them too. I am getting another one. I will let you know were I find one.

It was good to see you and Ms. Goofy at the Santa Rosa market. With the Spring weather, the markets will start filling up with a lot of wonderful fruit and veggies.I'm gearing up and preparing my chile products for the season. I invite you all to stop by my booth for a taste of something special. Go here for my market schedule.

Peppahead, It is always good to see you and talk about peppers. I have to pull some weeds to get my pepper patch ready.

kathleen, Well hello back. Hope to hear from you again.

Lea Ann, Thanks! I wish I had your camera skills.

I love the Santa Rosa Market. Not as likely to get run over by a Lexus.
