Strawberries, Baskets and Beer

Jul 6, 2018 in Updates

Strawberry Fields Forever– You’ve waited and now they’re in in their prime season…. Strawberries. They the perfect food for snacking- sweet, juicy and nutritious. You just want to eat them all day and that’s a good thing because eating more fruit can help reduce the risk of diseases, high blood pressure and even some cancers.

Are you a Basket Case?– Well that’s okay! We’re crazy about baskets too. They’re beautiful and useful…. and they come in so many sizes and shapes. Everyone needs a Farmers Market shopping basket, perhaps two.

The WEFM Beer Garden is back. Old Possum Brewing will be pouring this Sunday.  Enjoy local craft beer while laughing with friends in a shady park setting. Add a little home-grown music and you have a perfect Sunday afternoon. Grow – Make – Drink – LOCAL

Buy lots of Beer! Lagunitas will be at West End Farmers Market every Sunday May through September. 100 % of their sales directly benefit the West End Farmers Market- so you can feel really good about buying vast quantities of beer. West End Farmers Market is a 501c3.

Music on the Railroad Square Music Festival Stage– Our music lineup is curated by a different local musician every month. July is curated by Elizabeth Wolfe- this Sunday Fly By Train.

WEFM is located near the SMART Downtown Santa Rosa stop– so you can take the train to enjoy the West End Farmers Market. The Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) eTickets app allows you to purchase and use tickets instantly on your phone using a debit or credit card. Simply download the free app, register your e-mail address in our secure system and you’re ready to ride. The California Welcome Center and Secure Bike lockers available here too.

WEFM Market Match– Yes! We accept EBT and offer a $25 match. So it’s easy to purchase fresh, local veggies, fruit, meat, seafood and more.  Our EBT sponsors have given away thousands of dollars in local food to our community.
