Saturday Farmers Market in Petaluma

Melanie Wong | Sep 13, 200503:27 AM    

On Saturday I got started too late to make the Healdsburg farmers market. Previously several vendors from Healdsburg and from the Santa Rosa market would fold up from those morning markets and head south to Petaluma for the 2pm to 5pm farmers market. So, I headed to Petaluma too to see what's up. Well, it turns out that Saturday was an art in the park event as well. There seemed to be fewer vendors at the market than my last visit a couple years ago, but maybe some were crowded out by the art show.

For prepared foods, local restaurant Semolina was offering a plate of butternut squash ravioli for $6. The hot dog guy from Sonoma had a cart here. Panorama Baking of SF had a booth, and there was no local baker. The produce stands were mostly local producers from Petaluma or Sebastopol with a smattering of vendors from the Central Valley. Aqua Rodeo was selling oysters, $6/dozen, from Arcata Bay --- haven't seen these folks before. I bought some beets from B&B Organics, which offered quite a variety of produce. It sells only here direct and the rest of the crop goes to Whole Foods.
