Family is in town, gifts have been given, the post holiday sales were all shopped yesterday, leftovers are dwindling … what to do in Ukiah with friends and family on a post holiday Saturday morning?
How about showing off our pretty historic downtown and stopping in at the Saturday Farmers’ Market? The market will be small and mellow (we will not have live music to save those talented fingers from the cold, we will be spinning local music on the boombox). A few vendors will be out with their own families but we should still have lots of great local foods and some quality local crafts you can get with the dollars you got trading in that electric ear warmers from Uncle Floyd.
Stop in and enjoy a baked good to support the Ford Street Project, have a cup of fair trade, organic Thanksgiving coffee and share a smile. Getting some fresh local food also is a great way to keep your strength up for all next week’s parties, like the one at the Saturday Afternoon Club…

There is a slide show version of WELL co-founder Dr. Jason Bradford’s video on this blog at Scenario 2020: The Future of Food in Mendocino County… a “history” of how Mendocino County survived the economic and social upheaval of 2009 and learned how to feed itself. The slide show version is here→
Check Friday’s edition of the UDJ for Part I of my first (and likely only) New Year’s rant.
See you at the market.
