Feast of the Fruit- West End Farmers Market

Sep 6, 2014 in Updates

Heirloom tomatoes abound so it is the perfect time to feast on this seasonal fruit. That’s not the only fruit to relish and devour- strawberries, rasberries, melons, peaches, figs await you at SRWEFM .

rEVOLUTION Bread is made using old world long fermentation techniques &  modern knowledge. Eli Colvin rotates his bread selection depending on how he feels and he is always creating new ideas. It doesn’t matter whether its Rustic Italian, Toasted Corn baguettes, Pretzels or Focaccia topped with delicious ingredients … they are all made with outstanding, wholesome ingredients.
Eli was in Napa when the recent 6.0 earthquake hit. He was in the midst of baking and ended up with a broken oven, baking table and everything else on the floor. We thank goodness that he wasn’t hurt and was able to get everything back in working order. Check out rEVOLUTION Bread and meet the extraordinary Eli Colvin.

An Artful Market. Nestled next to the historic DeTurk Round Barn, a lovely park and historic winery building, the West End Farmers Market is picturesque. It’s a small, brimming with community and has been compared to markets in Paris. Photographers, painters & musicians feel inspired and are a frequent sight at the market. Come and experience for yourself!
