Favorites for the North Bay (Marin & Sonoma)...

My highlights include:
-Breakfast at Howard Station Cafe in Occidental
-Baked goods at Wild Flour in the tiny town of Freestone (great place to bike too)
-Saturday Farmers Market at the Marin Country Mart in Larkspur
-Casual dining under $50 for 2 at Pacific Catch in Corte Madera (ahi tuna salad)
-Cheese finds from Joe Matos ("St Jorge" cheese) and Bohemian Creamery
-BYO restaurant The Fig Cafe in Glen Ellen
