Broadway Market celebrated its 40th anniversary on Saturday, June 28 with a huge celebration that included a barbecue.
The market, at the corner of Broadway and Leveroni, is known for its casual atmosphere, friendly customer service, Harris Ranch meats and Sonoma’s Best Popcorn.
Longtime owners, and cousins, Ron Rodgers and Dianne Gaudino wanted to show their appreciation by throwing an impressive celebration for their loyal customers and vendors. Old and young alike dropped by the market during the day-long celebration.
Customers said they had been coming to the market for 20-plus years. Eric Nyberg, owner of Nyberg Landscape, said, “I worked at Broadway Market in high school.” Now his daughter, Emma Nyberg, is following suit and is working in the deli. Some of the old timers reminisced as they soaked in the years gone by.
Other Sonoma residents stopped by throughout the day to celebrate the market “where everybody knows your name.”
