Explore the Bounty of Healdsburg Farmers Market All Summer Long

Where & When:
Saturdays, 9am-Noon (May-Nov.) – Healdsburg Plaza

Grapes and the world-famous wine they make aren't the only reason Sonoma County has become a global destination for fine food aficionados. In fact, the region has been a beacon of fresh, organic and sustainable produce since long before such things were hip. In the middle of it all and host to a twice-weekly Farmers Market, Healdsburg is an ideal crossroads for area growers to sell their seasonal offerings, many from less than 10 miles away. Not only will you find some of the freshest fruits and vegetables available, there's often live music, as well as all sorts of prepared foods and crafts from local artists.

Farm-Fresh Produce Since 1978
For almost 40 years, farmers have been trucking their bounty to Healdsburg, treating us to peaches and strawberries in the spring, heirloom tomatoes all summer, and apples in the fall. Since then, Dry Creek Valley ranchers have added grass-fed beef, lamb, pastured pork, rabbits, and goat to the mix. Other popular favorites include cage-free eggs, organic cheeses, handmade sausage, local honey, olive oil, bread, pies, and fresh-caught wild fish.

Some vendors that draw repeat customers week after week include:
Owen Family Farm – Meats, Sausage, Jerky, Sheep Hides, and Pet Food
