Not Just Food: Saturday Farmers Market in Ukiah


From JANIE SHEPPARD

When it’s sweets you crave, the best toffee in the whole world is to be had at the Saturday Farmers Market.   Just try to resist after tasting it . . . impossible!

But, let’s say you want a toy.  This sheep bah-ed “Snuggle me!”  Poor little sheep, I took its picture instead.


Whiling away a few more minutes before picking up my share of vegetables from the MendoOrganics Winter CSA, I noticed a young man, Eric Cinowalt, with an intriguing knife sharpening gadget that holds a knife at a steady angle while sharpening it on a traditional sharpening stone.

Mendocino Winter Organics CSA, its website is here, brings loads of gorgeous vegetables to the Saturday market where CSA members pick up their shares.  How about this gorgeous chard?

You can check out what’s happening at the year-round Ukiah Farmers Market here on Ukiahblog.com, on Facebook, in Scott Cratty’s Friday articles in the Ukiah Daily Journal, or by coming to the market Saturday morning between 9:30 and Noon, under the pavilion at Alex Thomas Plaza, corner of Clay and School Streets.

See you there on Saturday.
