Ok, by now most of you have noticed that I haven’t been at the market…
Dearest Farmers Market Community. Welcome back for another beautiful fall day at the Sebastopol Farmers Market. Joining us this Sunday, we have a special guest Mai Nguyen, ‘Farmer Mai’, at the market to talk about local grain production and an opportunity for community members to invest in a local flour share. We are incredibly lucky to have her! You may have heard of and participated in farm CSA produce boxes. This is a way to support a local grain farmer and an opportunity to have the most amazing fresh milled flour for baking.. just in time for the holidays!! Did you know that most small farmer grain production is grown with just the annual rainfall? Photo Credit Ashby Marshall

Thank you for supporting our local small farmers especially now when they need you most. The drought and extreme temperatures have had a devastating impact. It’s important that we all do our part to save our most precious resources.. water, farmers and locally produced food.
With mask recommendations still in place, please be sensitive to those in our community who are taking extra precautions. If you don’t have a mask, please give them space.
In Deepest Gratitude we acknowledge the many blessings of gathering in community.
We can’t wait to see you this and every Sunday!
