“The Russians Are Coming, the Russians are Coming” will be showing on the big screen once again in Mendocino on June 4 at Crown Hall as part of the Mendocino Film Festival program.

To celebrate this occasion, the Kelley House Museum has created an exhibit, from a selected group of photographs, publicity materials and memorabilia gifted to the Museum by local author of “Mendocino and the Movies”, Bruce Levene. On display are also memorabilia collected by Neil “Mac” McBurney, manager of the Coast Theatre at the time, such as an autograph book of actor’s signatures and signed photographs. The Kelley House Museum is located at 45007 Albion Street and open Friday – Monday from 11:00 – 3:00.

Farmer’s Markets open for 2011
Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

Mendocino Farmer's Market is running again!

Mendocino Farmer's Market is running again!

Once again, the farmer’s markets are open at towns all along the Mendocino Coast (and inland, too). I’ve been dropping by the markets in Mendocino and Fort Bragg for years, and there’s really a wide variety of produce available. You can also find cut flowers for sale, and local honey and berries, and who knows what else? The market in Mendocino takes place on Howard Street, in the block just north of Main Street, from noon until 2:00 every Friday through October 28. The Fort Bragg market is on Wednesday afternoons from 3-6 pm in the 400 block of Franklin St, in front of City Hall. The Gualala market is on Saturdays from 9:30-12:30pm at the Gualala Community Center. The Mendocino County Farmer’s Market Association has a Web site with pointers to all of the locations in the county, and more. They’re still working on their site, evidently, but the basic info is there.
