Tonight's the Night: Farmers' Market is Back

The Valley of the Moon Certified Farmers Market kicks off its season with a new manager and a big musical act


It's that time again: the Valley of the Moon Certified Farmers' Market – better known around these parts as the 'Tuesday Night Market' – rears its Springtime head tonight.

Over 70 vendors are scheduled for this year's market roster – check out the full list online. The names include heavy-hitters (Cochon Volant BBQ, Oak Hill Farm) local favorites (The Epicurean Connection, The Bejkr) and, of course, a hearty representation of area non-profits and community organizations.

Tonight, musical guest Jeff Campbell, frontman for the San Francisco band, Pine and Battery, kicks off the market entertainment, while Sonoma Mayor Joanne Sanders will be by for a special opening day ceremony. (Upcoming acts will be posted here.)

Wanna know more? The Sonoma Index-Tribune profiled Chris Welch, the newly hired market manager, in today's issue. Welch, formerly a Colorado resident, moved here last summer and is ready to be thrown in head-first to his first market season.

What's your favorite market memory? to refresh your mind.

I always enjoy shopping at our farmers' market.

Not only do I enjoy the fresh produce, but I also enjoy the multi cultural aspects of the Sonoma Farmers' Market.

Thank you for your promotion of the market, however, just one clarification, Jeff Campbell 'opened' for Train, he is not a member....although I'm sure Pat Monahan would welcome him with open arms. Jeff is the frontman for the San Francisco band, Pine and Battery, and recently released his first acoustic album, 'Stop and Go'.

Ah, thanks for the correction Elizabeth. We've updated the piece.
