Summer Sunday at the Market

Jun 7, 2014 in Updates

Visit “the happiest place in Santa Rosa” this Sunday and see if you agree: food that travels the shortest distance between farm and fork is the tastiest.

Foggy River Farm is a small, sustainable family farm just outside of Healdsburg. Lynda and Emmett Hopkins Farm the same land that Emmett’s grandparentsowned in the 1950s. They grow fresh, local, chemical-free lettuces, chard, kale, garlic, snap beans and more. They also have an amazing variety of dried beans some are Jacob’s Cattle, Rio Zape, Marrowfat & Black Turtle. Drop by Foggy River Farm to buy healthy food grown by young farmers.

Sew Hott Embroidery and Design– Not all artists produce works of art from paint, pen or clay: Debi Hottinger, a long time sewing and embroidery teacher, creates her art out of fabric and thread. She machine sews and embroiders many items from purses to market totes with recycled or reclaimed fabrics. She was encouraged when her first purses were accepted and displayed at an art gallery. She also creates a variety of useful items such as aprons, tea towels and art portfolio bags. Meet Debi at her booth “Sew Hott” at West End Farmers Market.
