The most beautiful smile in the world has been debated for centuries.  Could the most beautiful smile be the smile of desire?  The smile of contentment?  The smile of victory?  The smile of a muse has inspired men for centuries and one of the world’s most famous smiles, The Mona Lisa smile, will forever be a beguiling curiosity.  But all these smiles pale in comparison the best smile of all.  The one smile that rules all others.  That smile is … the Sonoma County Strawberry Patch Smile!

Of course, some people have great luck with farming, but I don’t believe anyone will tell you it’s an easy life. Every child in my mother’s family did farm chores. The youngest at age three fed the chickens and hunted for eggs. The oldest helped their father feed the cows and do the daily milking. My mother recalls a year they planted eight sacks of potatoes and only grew eight sacks of potatoes! That was a hunger year. My grandmother Alice Baker worked as a sharecropper at the age of 12 with her four siblings. When her children were small on the Homestead, she taught them not to greedily fill their stomachs. She led them in saying grace and leaving food so that the whole family would get enough to eat. In other words, eat to live not live to eat. So, I congratulate Cotati for their vision and follow-through on Veronda-Falletti Ranch.

Some farmer's markets are open all year (see**), but most begin in May and June as farmers across Sonoma County harvest fresh crops and bring them to market for our eating pleasure. We are blessed to live where fresh, locally-grown and produced food is readily available. Our markets teem with fruits and vegetables throughout the season, and many have locally made products from quilts to jewelry, ready-prepared food so we can enjoy a meal at the market, and even live music for entertainment.

This list is up-to-date for 2019 so if you see any market we have missed, please emailvesta@sonic.net so we can include every market in Sonoma County!
