Farmers & Purveyors


Bloomfield Organics

Bloomfield Organics is operated by Michael Collins, his wife Karen, and their children. They raise vegetables and greens on their land 15 miles west of Petaluma. Their farm is located near and named after the town of Bloomfield, one of the oldest settlements in Sonoma County. Bloomfield grows a wide variety of vegetables and herbs, including strawberries, lettuces, radishes, artichokes, kale, purple mizuna, chard, genovese basil, Italian parsley, chives, fava beans, dry farmed potatoes and tomatoes.

Capay Organic

After more than 30 years of organic farming, Capay Organic grows more that 130 varieties of fruits and vegetables on 500 acres of certified organic land. The farm is now owned and operated by the second-generation farmers – Kathy and Martin’s sons – Noah, Thaddeus and Freeman. In keeping with their parents’ vision, the farm practices healthy crop rotation, encourages a diverse ecosystem around our fields, efficiently uses local water sources, and carefully selects produce varieties that grow well and taste great.

County Line Harvest Farm

David Retsky started County Line Harvest on a six-acre plot on the Sonoma-Marin County line before moving over the hill in 2007 to Red Hill Ranch in Marin County. Shortly after he settled in on the new property, Marin Agriculture Land Trust acquired the easement on Red Hill Ranch, preserving it forever as farmland. Not only did this new property provide more acreage for cultivation, but the abundance of renewable on-site water and the MALT easement helped ensure the continuation of County Line's goal to provide fresh produce to its surrounding communities. Over the past few years, there has been an ever-increasing demand for organically grown produce, and alongside a growing customer base, it seemed the perfect time to expand. Following the models of other successful farms, County Line Harvest found a property in the Coachella Valley, about 2 ½ hours east of Los Angeles. With the first harvest in October 2010, County Line South now provides year-round availability of the sweet lettuces and tender salad greens that have become its trademark, as well as many other crops that have only lengthened the varied list of what it grows.

Crane Creek Growers

Farmer Joy's Eggs

Farmer Joy raises her flock of ducks and hens on her family’s multi generational farm, located just outside of Petaluma. Her 200 hens and 20 ducks graze pasture during the day, and enjoy organic produce from a local vegetable farm as a supplement to their diet. Farmer Joy prides herself on having a genetically diverse flock of hens, with over 13 breeds. This variety of breeds allows for a wide range of shell colors. When you buy a dozen eggs, expect shell colors ranging from light brown to very dark brown, green, and blue, and many have speckles.

Hidden Star Orchards

This 80-acre certified organic farm located in the Sierra Nevada foothills has three generations working the farm, with the grandchildren helping to sort apples in the summer. The farm is cultivated with a variety of fruits, which include apples, cherries, blueberries, pomegranates, and grapes. As an integral part of the apple growing business, Hidden Star Orchards has developed a specialty niche in freshly pressed cider. Each week a team of four workers gathers up a blend of apples and other fruits (apple cherry, apple lemon, and apple pomegranate) and prepares them for juicing. They also make 100% pure pomegranate juice and cherry juice. After being pressed, the juices are flash frozen to preserve the integrity of their flavor and to extend their shelf life once it is in your refrigerator. Juices are sold in 8 ounce, 16 ounce, 24 ounce, and 32 ounce servings.

La Chiquita Farm

La Chiquita Farm is a small 4-acre berry farm that is certified organic by CCOF.

Leap Frog Farm

The mild growing season of the Capay Valley allows Leap Frog Farm to be in production year round, so you can visit Annie each and every Saturday!

Navarro Vineyards & Pennyroyal Creamery

Navarro Vineyards and Pennyroyal Farm are located in the heart of Mendocino County, in the fertile Anderson Valley. The Anderson Valley is a highly regarded wine region, specifically known for growing renowned Pinot, Chardonnay and Rhone varietals. The vineyard at Navarro was designed so that it can be rotationally grazed by miniature Babydoll sheep, replacing diesel driven tractors. A hundred goats and a small herd of sheep not only produce farmstead cheese by their sister farm, Pennyroyal Farm, but also yield enough manure that when converted to compost, provides the fertilizer for all of Navarro’s grape vines. Pennyroyal Farm produces handcrafted cheese exclusively from the goats and sheep that munch on the wild grasses and pennyroyal mint that blanket their sixty-six acres. The milk is transformed into fresh and aged cheeses.

The electricity needs at both Navarro Vineyards and Pennyroyal Farm, including the milking parlor and creamery are solar powered and irrigation water comes from stored winter rainfall. They have some of the most ecologically conscientious designs and practices, created by a winery and farmstead creamery.

Navarro wines are only sold direct, meaning you can’t buy them in stores. Navarro Vineyards was named Winery of the year for 2014, which is an impressive accolade. Watch the July 2014 KCRA Television spotlight on Navarro Vineyards; and to learn more about their triple bottom line operation (people, planet, profit).

Navarro Vineyards and Pennyroyal Creamery is at the farmers' market every other Saturday. Stop by to sample their cheeses and wine!

Old Dog Ranch

Old Dog Ranch is a fifth generation walnut farm nestled in the foothills of the central valley on the Calaveras River. It was named for the beloved Mollie-Dog, a German Shepard, and Poppy, a Golden Retriever Mix, who lived on the ranch into their mid-teens. Old Dog Ranch is transitional organic and uses organic and sustainable practices including cover crops and no-till farming. Mollie (the farmer's daughter, who was named after Mollie-Dog) is at the farmers’ market weekly selling the ranch’s 2012 crop of Chandler Walnuts and delicious artisan walnut products, including Old Dog Ranch Walnut Milk, shelled raw walnuts, roasted walnuts, candied walnuts, and savory roasted rosemary walnuts.

Aztec Dahlias

Aztec Dahlias is a Sonoma County flower farm dedicated to growing Dahlias, in dozens of varieties, colors and sizes.

Aztec Dahlias also sells tubers, so that you can plant, nurture, and ultimately enjoy Dahlias in your own yards. Aztec Dahlias began as a hobby business, but it became full time seven years ago. Lucky for the O’Brien family their Dahlia business was already off the ground and running - they just needed to grow and expand to turn it into a full time venture. Aztec Dahlias is now 16 years old, so the O’Brien family is quite literally the experts in Dahlias. Aztec Dahlias will be at our market from August through the end of October or early November, or as long as the weather holds out.

Fallon Hills Ranch

You’ll find grass fed beef and lamb from cows and sheep pastured in Fallon Hills’s 310-acre ranch in Tomales, just four miles inland from the Pacific Coast. Grass-fed beef and lamb typically have twice the levels of omega-3 essential fatty acids than conventionally farmed products, and their pastures are full of high nutritional mix for the animals: ryegrass, subterranean clover, orchard grass and wild fescue make up the diet of these healthier animals, which in turn means more healthful meats.

Owners Shannon, Kevin and Brian maintain a herd of about 100 ewes and 50 cows. The flocks are rotated between four main pastures, allowing both space for the animals to roam, as well as time between grazings for the foliage to regenerate. Fallon Hills not only produces local, superior, higher nutritional meats, but does so sustainably.

Saint Benoit Creamery

Saint Benoît Creamery is best known to Bay Area locals for its sustainably packaged artisanal, organic, whole milk, French-style yogurt.
