Truth be told it’s always time for a Sonoma Valley farmers market, fresh local food is just how we roll. Even though the Sonoma Valley Market is open year round, the signs of spring and warmer weather start to get the juices flowing for a need to visit a local parking lot that has been transformed into a mini food festival.
Sonoma takes the farmers market and transforms it into a weekly town party with the super popular Tuesday night market in the Sonoma Plaza. This market will bring in several hundred people who shop, lay out blankets and chairs on the park grass, picnic, listen to that weeks live music and sip wine with friends and family for a great weekly way to connect with each other. If you have never been to the Tuesday night market then get out your calendar and pick a date and call some friends…you just have to experience this!
