San Ramon Farmer's Market Opens May 3

San Ramon Farmer's MarketWelcome to another season of the San Ramon Farmer's Market!

On Saturday, May 3, 2008 we will open our doors to another exciting season of celebrating local growers, local food and local history. Share the abundance and the experience of the market with your neighbors, friends and family. Located on a historical 16-acre farm, Forest Home Farms offers a beautiful agricultural setting to host a weekly farmers market. Take a picnic or a guided tour every Saturday and learn about the history of this place.

With an expanded food courtyard to include fresh pastas, olives and pestos, homemade mini-donuts, Afghan and Italian sauces and bolani, kettle corn, mouth watering vegan treats, jams preserves, crepes and galettes and more. We hope you will enjoy hanging around a bit while enjoying live music and connecting with your favorite local grower. For opening day, we will have organic strawberries, asparagus, and much more!

Also new this year is an expanded arts & crafts corner, a new visitor and gift center with new public restrooms, and local business booth sponsored by the San Ramon Chamber of Commerce. I would also like to introduce a new addition to the San Ramon Farmers Market team. Please welcome Nancy Young as your new farmers market manager. Nancy has a dynamic energy, a love for community and a passion for local sustainable agriculture!

See you at the market!

Market Director
