A New Sense of Community: The Weekly Farmer’s Market!

Ever been down to the Weekly Farmer’s Market?

veggiesIt may seem like a simple idea: farmer’s bring their goods to an open lot and sell them. But what goes on at the weekly Farmer’s Markets across Sonoma and Marin Counties is so much more than that. It is a gathering of community members celebrating each other, sharing their goods, and spreading the word about new things they are thinking of trying. It is a web of people helping each other make the community more aware of how helpful (and yummy) shopping local is.

Not sure where your local Weekly Farmer’s Market is?
