Feeling that summer itch to get out into the neighborhood and socialize? Across the North Bay, local farmers markets are underway, better and better every year. Fairfax, Tiburon, Petaluma, Sebastopol, Sonoma markets are going great guns. Now, the Kenwood Farmers Market starts Sunday, June 4. The market is located at St. Patrick’s Church, 9000 Sonoma Highway.
The market is operated by Agricultural Community Events Farmers Markets, “growing farmers markets since 2010.”
Glen Ellen had a little market in the Jack London Village parking lot for a couple years, but farmers just couldn’t make it at that venue. So, the market drifted over to leafy green St Patrick’s. Whether you are a local or visiting wine country this is the place to be on Sunday afternoon.
Besides apples, pears, carrots, and asparagus, a new vendor will be bringing paella to this year’s market, There will be a new coffee vendor as well.
Hours will be 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. weekly until Sept. 24.
There will be a picnic bench in the open field under the trees to give folks a shady place to eat.
There will be live music every week.
There will be local farmers including the Patch from Sonoma, Neufeld Farms, Viveros Farms, Two Moon Family Farm from Glen Ellen and Eddies’ Farm from Kenwood. Anna’s Seafood will be presenting new and different ocean delicacies. The market is still accepting applications if people are interested.
