BiteClub’s mentioned the forthcoming farm market coming to Santa Rosa’s West End, but the neighborhood market officially kicks off this Sunday, June 23 at 10am. Months in the making, market manager Allen Thomas says they’ll have between 25-30 food and craft vendors to start, with hopes that more will join. “There is a sense of community that is really bubbling pretty intensely (in the West End), and
Idea of a farm market had been in the works for a while,” said Allen. “It’s an opportunity to have a market downtown that’s close to the people here and give farmers another marketplace,” Allen said. On the roster, Bloomfield Farms, Twin Palms, Tusque Farms, Healdsburg Farm Fresh Eggs and others, beginning at 10a.m at West Ninth St. and Donahue near the DeTurk Round Barn.
