Marin County Farmers' Market at The Fork

Last weekend Dominic and I had the pleasure of attending a campaign kickoff fundraising event for the Market Hall and Canopy for the Marin County Farmers' Market.

The goal is to raise enough funds to build a permanent  and sustainable structure and canopy to house the Marin County Farmers' Market's local agriculture, small businesses, farmers and ranchers . This way farm fresh food will be available year round and we can shop and stay dry simultaneously.

The local farm and agriculture community is small and very important to me and my family. Although our family does not sell product at the farmer's market, we have many friends and family that do utilize the opportunity to grow, raise and then sell their products to our local community through the farmer's market.

The Farmers' Market provides local farmers and ranchers, along with special food purveyors and artisans direct access to more than 15,000 people every week.  It is critical for survival to these local farmers and ranchers to have a venue like this available to them to directly associate and connect with the community.

The fundraising event was held at one of my favorite farm to table venues around....The Fork at Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company.  If you haven't tried their award winning Point Reyes Original Blue or others, you should if you get the chance.  Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese is made from the Giacomini family's own herd of Holstein cows, raised right there on the farm.
