Sunday is the start of National Farmers Market Week. WEFM is celebrating with loads of ultra-fresh produce, scrumptious prepared food and drinks, local artisans, live music, wine-tasting, and a special guest — everything you need to appreciate the many benefits farmers markets bring to our communities.

Michele Anna Jordan, chef, radio personality, columnist for the Press Democrat and author of nearly 20 books, will join the market on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., offering tastes (Warm Tomato Vinaigrette, Chermoula, Bread & Sausage Salad and more) from her newest publication, Vinaigrettes and Other Dressings, which will be available for sale ($19 ) and signing.

The DeTurk Round Barn (819 Donahue Ave. next to WEFM) will be open for visitors from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This is a great opportunity to see the inside of one of the most unique buildings in Santa Rosa. Built in 1891, it was recently renovated so it could be used for community meetings, classes and events. SR Rec and Parks’ new Fall/Winter Activity guide will be available and a few instructors will be there to share information about their upcoming courses. The Steele Lane Tiny Tot instructor will have a small play area for the kids.
