Spreading the word about the 2012 Tuesday Night Farmers Market, which returns to the Sonoma Plaza on May 1, are, from left: Bill Dardon, market board chairman; Christopher Welch, the new market manager; and Emily Fitzpatrick, market administrator. Kicking off the season will be dancers from the Sonoma Ballet Conservatory, live music with Jeff Campbell and a ribbon cutting with Mayor Joanne Sanders. The 2012 market will again extend through the Plaza horseshoe to the north side of City Hall. There will be new vendors of prepared foods, and a EBT machine has been added as well. The commemorative poster was created by Carolyn Hipkiss.
