There’s nothing like a farmers market for delivering a quite literal taste of both a region’s produce and its character. That’s certainly true of the Healdsburg Farmers’ Market. Even better, the market is an easy, 5 minute stroll from Camellia Inn!
Farmers markets have really been making a comeback as more people learn about the benefits of locally grown, healthy, whole, and raw foods. Beyond all the fresh, local produce, farmers markets help to promote local economic health and are more sustainable than big box grocery stores.
They’re also a great way to get to know both your neighbors and your food producers better. When traveling, visiting a local farmers market is a great way to get a feel for and help support a community.
These facts are well known in Healdsburg because our farmers market has been a local institution since 1978! In fact the Healdsburg market is one of California’s original, twenty-two Certified farmers markets!
