The Sonoma Garden Park’s Seasonal Harvest Market is now open every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Located at 19996 Seventh Street East, just north of Denmark the market has a bountiful variety of sustainably grown produce as well as flowers, honey and eggs all produced in the host gardens.

Visitors can enjoy a stroll through the gardens, a picnic in the fig forest, or bird-watching in the lovely park setting. Weekend cyclists and hikers can make the Harvest Market a stop to refuel and pick up supplies for their Sonoma Valley adventures.

Sonoma Garden Park, a project of the Sonoma Ecology Center, is a working farm model of sustainable agriculture, and center for education. It is comprised of a team of farmers, educators, native plant specialists, ecologists, and a host of volunteers.

Sonoma Garden Park donated to the City by the late Pauline Bond, a forward-thinking school teacher. Sonoma Ecology Center has managed the six-acre site since 1993, transforming what was once an abandoned orchard into a true community treasure.
