Summer Fast Approaches

    We're now in the transition time between the exit of good citrus and apples, and the advent of stone fruit and melons.  Apricots have arrived, with reviews ranging from "adequate" to "not bad for this early".  The ones I've sampled were tasty, but handle with care, as they bruise easily.  California nectarines and peaches are also coming in now, with the nectarine getting my vote for flavor.  The first red cherries are good, but very pricey.  Expect plums in about two weeks, with Black Beauties appearing first, followed by the Flavorosa pluots out of Reedley.  California Desert cantaloupes and honeydews will arrive any day now.

You may have seen our produce truck – if you're out early in the morning.  Dave is our produce buyer and department supervisor for both stores.

Dave is one of our original employees-one of our first hires at our inception in 1985! 

He buys direct from the San Francisco produce market and from local growers when in season, including organic farmers.

You can be assured, if the produce isn't the best, Dave won't bring it "home" to Sonoma Market and Glen Ellen Village Market!
