May "Corkage for Community Program" - Farmstead,  St. Helena - Supporting the St. Helena Farmers' MarketFarmstead edited

Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch has taken a distinctive approach to restaurant corkage protocol through their “Corkage for Community” program. Instead of the typical $10 to $20 corkage fee charged for opening a bottle of wine brought to a restaurant, Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch collects a $5 fee for every guest's bottle. This unusually low corkage fee is donated to a different community-based not-for-profit organization each month. Their corkage program is another way they can promote our location as a community meeting place and support their neighbors in the community at the same time. They want to encourage vintners, growers, and wine enthusiasts to come to Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch to show off their wines while at the same time contributing to the local community. In the five years since Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch first opened its doors, more than $100,000 has been donated to community-based not-for-profit organizations. Bring your own wine, enjoy the yummy food at Farmstead and support the St. Helena Farmers' Market!

A Sad Farewell!

It is with a very heavy heart that we say good bye to two icons from the St. Helena Farmers' Market who recently passed away.

BobEllsworthBob Ellsworth, former President and Board Member of the St. Helena Farmers' Market continued to provide tremendous support to the Market throughout his later years. A fixture at the market every week with his wife Phoebe, Bob's sense iof humor was guaranteed to bring a smile to you face.....As a tribute to Bob we have included this great article on him titled "The Compleat Tinkerer" featured in the S.H. Star  in 2005.NancyNL
Nancy Skall, Middleton Farm. A much loved vendor at our market for many years, Nancy was an inspiraqtion to us all. Her wonderful smile and her delicous organic produce were a staple at the markeyt every week. This article beautifully sums up Nancy and the legacy she leaves behind.

We are honored to have had Bob and Nancy as part of our Market's Family and send our heartfelt love and very best wishes to their families. We loved them and will miss them dreadfully,

Much more than Veggies!

We love our veggies - they don't come any fresher when they are picked first thing on market mornings. Find out more about our market and enjoy this presentation!!

 2015 “Eat Your Veggies” Art Competition

 This year we asked our talented Grade 3 through 5 artists to draw original artwork in the form of one character (animal, vegetable, fruit, adult, child etc) that encourages kids to eat fruits and vegetables. Their artwork had to include the slogan “Eat Your Veggies”. In addition they were asked to answer a number of questions that focused their attention on healthy eating. Seventy-four students from the St. Helena Elementary School, St. Helena Catholic School, St. Helena Montessori School, and The Young School submitted entries. 

Our young artists did a fabulous job presenting the judges with a very difficult task. Our Grand Prize Winner is the St. Helena Catholic School’s fifth grader, Gianna, whose artwork will adorn our adult, youth, toddler and infant apparel and a range of different merchandise for sale at the market’s General Store.

We offer a very big thank you to all the students who participated and to all of the parents and teachers who supported and encouraged the young artists!.

Top 10 Reasons to Shop at the St. Helena Farmers’ Market

  1. Support local farmers and the local economy.
  2. Reduce pollution and fuel usage. (Our fruits and veggies are grown in California—several of our vendors are from the Napa Valley.)
  3. Support growers who respect the environment and who protect natural resources.
  4. The produce is really fresh. (Many of our farmers pick just before coming to market—which makes produce tastier and more nutritious.)
  5. Help protect our farming heritage by saving heirloom varieties.
  6. Keep diversity alive in produce choices. Our farmers grow many old varieties not available in local supermarkets.
  7. Our local produce often costs less than produce sold at local stores.
  8. It’s a good excuse to meet friends for coffee and pastries.
  9. Maintain the heritage of this “Community Treasure,” founded in July 1986.
  10. It’s fun!
