Forestville Farmers Market Opens


Forestville Farmers Market Opens June 7

by Rob Cary

The Forestville Certified Farmers Market will celebrate the opening of its 4th season on Tuesday, June 7, 4-7pm, and will run every Tuesday through October. 

Our entire community is excited about the Market’s new location: Forestville’s new Town Square in the center of town under the shady oaks (across the street from Fred’s Liquor).

Opening Day, June 7, will feature pony rides along with a ı for the kids, a Wine Garden for the adults, and local food vendors, drinks, live music and frozen art ice cream for all! 

Food, Food, Fabulous Food! And Wine!

This year’s food venue is bigger than before! We have restaurants from Forestville, and local chef’s bringing their best to the Market table. Forestville Pizzeria will offer pizzas made from scratch, starting with hand-tossed dough, made daily with 100% olive oil; La Rosas Taqueria will be serving tasty Mexican foods; The well-known Green Grocer will offer the freshest ingredients sourced directly from local farmers; Cannetis Roadhouse Italiana (located directly across the street) is bringing fresh baked Italian artisan focaccias and specialty breads; Tiny Town Café will offer coffees, chais, and sweet treats. 

Zephyr Chocolates will bring high quality, decadent, chocolates, cocoas, toffees and other fine sweets. Achadinah Cheeses (Osh-a-deen-a) will be offering handcrafted artisan cheeses from their ranch in Petaluma. California Balsamics will be back with their products featuring the finest fruit essential oils, rice bran oil and balsamic vinegars. Frozen Art Ice Cream’s gourmet ice cream boasts fresh fruit from local growers, creating delightful flavors.

Wine Garden

We’re adding a Wine Garden this year! Wineries from The Tasters 116 Group of local wineries will be pouring high quality wines by the glass at special discounted market night prices. The Tasters 116 wineries will be appearing on a rotational basis weekly, so you will have the opportunity to taste a variety of exceptional wines. 

Local Farmers

As always, the market will feature fresh fruits and vegetables from local farmers: Russian River Vineyards Farm, RLR Vineyards Farm, Creek Song Farm, and SunRise Ranch, all of Forestville, and Ortiz Bros. of Santa Rosa.

Local Handcrafted Gift Items

Our talented local artists will be offering artisan products including soaps and body/beauty products, stunning jewelry, cards and other hand crafted items. Enjoy this great source for unique gifts while supporting our local crafters.

The Beauty All Around Us

Don’t forget to breathe in the beauty of our fabulous wine country, take in the peaceful sunsets, and slow down to reconnect with old friends.
