Wine is the backbone of our economy. Each year, one can't help but notice the buds swell, the freshness of the pale green new leaves, the lush beauty of the summer vineyard, then the fruit swelling and ripening. The vineyard workers come and harvest the fruit and the whole valley is rich with the smell of the crush. The leaves turn their autumn colors and fall to the ground and the vineyard is asleep again. The wineries, however, are busy making the fruit of the grapevines into sumptuous wines.

Fresh Foods

October is usually the transitional month between summer and fall vegetables. Winter squash starts to come in as the summer squash goes out. Look for Halloween pumpkins and the start of cool weather crops such as broccoli and turnips.

Apples, apples, apples and pears! This month continues the appearance of local apples, asian pears, figs, regular pears, and, of course, grapes. Local persimmons are starting to turn color on the tree, so, hopefully by the end of the month, they will be in the market. The Farmers Market will hold it's Pumpkin Festival this month with carvings, a Scarecrow contest and good fun for all.

The Farmers Market is open twice a week: Saturday morning from 9 until noon and on the Plaza Tuesdays from 4 - 6:30 pm. You can find fresh produce as well as breads, cheeses and fish.

Sonoma County produce is featured in most of our restaurants. It's always a good night to eat out in Healdsburg.
