In 1999, Dan Lehrer and his wife Joanne Krueger (of Flatland Flower Farm), moved to Sebastopol and took over a small apple orchard. They then converted the land to organic, planted new varieties of heirloom apples and erected three greenhouses on the property to grow plant starts. Their apples are harvested in late summer, and for much of the year they offer edible, native and rare plant starts to market shoppers.
In addition to providing access to fresh, local fruits and veggies to Bay Area residents, CUESA has also been incubating and supporting small artisan food businesses for 20 years through the operation of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market. This month we are celebrating small food crafters from our market and beyond as we host two events focused on artisanal food producers.
This holiday season, give the gift of good food while supporting local farmers and food artisans.

Here are some fall treats you won’t want to miss this month at the market:
