The first one is today, 3-7 pm, at the very bottom of Solano.

    thanks for the note. passed by today, about a dozen or so vendors. some familiar names: Blue heron farms, happy boy farms, phoenix Pastificio, scream sorbet.

    a new bakery, starter, was selling some interesting items - more on the pastry side than the bread side.

    a number of other farms were there...including one selling the first stock of cherries!

    located on the corner of san pablo and solano.

      A juggler, 2.50 avocados, no raspberries, did get some sweet strawberries. The cherries were tempting, but too expensive.

      It's run by the ecology center. Supposed to go through October.
