Now that we’re well into Spring, and past most of the rains, the farmers markets are opening up again. They’ll be running well into October, so take advantage of one of them. The Mendocino Farmers Market opens up today, May 4, and runs every Friday from noon until 2pm. They are set up on Howard Street, in the first block off Main Street. You’ll find locally grown vegetables, fruits, meat, cheese, olive oil, honey, tea, fresh and dried flowers, and other surprises. Quite a few local innkeepers shop here for fresh ingredients for their food….
The Fort Bragg Farmers Market opened up on Wednesday, May 2, and will be open until October 31 — wanna bet they’ll have pumpkins that day? The Fort Bragg market has moved this year. Instead of Franklin Street, they will be at the north end of town off Main Street (Highway One) at the lot by Century 21, just south of Elm Street. The market runs from 3:30 pm until 6 pm on Wednesdays.
The Gualala Farmers Market takes place at the Gualala Community Center, and it runs from May 26 through October 27, on Saturdays from 10am – 12:30pm.
