Gifts of Local Food

Gifts of Local Food

Consumables - Nothing to Launder or Dust!

MANY of us don’t want another object to figure out where to place. Food make more sense to us. In Sonoma County you can find locally grown, locally produced, locally created food products in every town.  We are Mecca for fine food and fine wine.  Some markets even sell beautifully made baskets you can purchase along with the food so you have everything ready to go.

Locally-Owned markets for Locally Made food:

Andy’s Produce Market -
This is MY market - this and tiny Speer’s in Forestville! Andy’s has my kind of food...fresh, organic fruits and vegetables to bulk flour, granola, spices and herbs - EVERYTHING is EXCELLENT! Their bulk is the best!1691 Gravenstein Hwy N, Sebastopol - (707) 823-8661

Big John’s Market -
The cheese section greets you as you enter and it’s easy to get hung up right there.  Local & Fresh is their motto and they come through. It’s just what north county needed. Their Salad and Hot Bar is better than home-made!1345 Healdsburg Ave, Healdsburg - (707)  433-7151

Community Market -

Molsberry’s Market -
What a blessing this market is. Smack in the middle of housing developments just east of Hwy 101, you can get fresh food in a market that’s easy to navigate. Locally sourced fish is my favorite and my reason to stop by on the way home.522 Larkfield Center, Santa Rosa - (707) 546-5041
