Oliver’s Market: The View From A Fair Trade Shopper


Oliver’s is a market with three storefronts in the Sonoma County area. I recently visited the store and cataloged the items the store carries that are Certified Fair Trade. While these items are stocked on the shelves at Oliver’s they are available in other markets as well such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. The purpose of this post is to give you a visual to assist you in finding these products at a market near you.

Warmer, wetter conditions coming to the North Bay

By Randi Rossmann, The Press Democrat

Get ready to put away the heavy woolies and get out the slickers. Starting this evening Mother Nature should launch a series of fronts across the North Coast bringing a relic of the past: rain.

Finally, that stubborn, month-long, high-pressure system is getting the boot, ending four weeks of sunny, cool, dry days.

The frigid early morning temperatures — Tuesday's 25 degrees in Santa Rosa was the lowest this season — should give way to the milder pattern associated with the rain.

Cotati City Council approves Old Redwood Highway roundabout plan

By Guy Kovner, The Press Democrat

Another ballot-box battle may be on Cotati’s horizon in the wake of the City Council’s unanimous approval of a $3.5 million plan to narrow the city’s main street and two install traffic roundabouts instead of stoplights.

Opponents of the plan had promised, even before the council vote shortly after midnight Wednesday, they would mount a drive for a referendum to bar roundabouts anywhere in the city.

Shopping Local: Oliver’s Called a True Neighborhood Gem

by Angela Hart, RohnertParkPatch

Oliver's Market — the Cotati-based grocery that's sprouted since the late 1980s from a hasty streetside produce vendor traveling over mostly Northern California selling fresh produce, to a widly popular marketplace is still focused on its roots: selling locally produced, seasonal foodstuffs.

It is that commitment, to source meats, eggs, produce, wines and hundreds of other products, from Sonoma County-based vendors that's driven the store's success, even through a recession.

Opponents of Cotati streets plan consider ballot measure to stop it

By Jeremy Hay, The Press Democrat

Opponents of a plan to remake Cotati's downtown into a narrower street that includes roundabouts have told city officials they will pursue a ballot initiative unless they change course.

The initiative would bar the city from building roundabouts anywhere within its limits. Its backers want the city to adhere to a concept it previously outlined, a four-lane street controlled by traffic lights.

Some in Cotati said a fight over a ballot measure would be bad for the city.

Where "Local" Means Sonoma County

To us Local means Sonoma County -- period. Not Marin, not Napa, and definitely not the state of California, as some of our competitors define it.

From the day we opened our doors in 1988, we’ve built our business on the simple premise that the best food and wine in the world are produced here, in Sonoma County. We didn’t feel like we were pioneers at the time, but as people have come to understand and embrace the value of locally grown and made food and the value of shopping locally, we realize we were part of the early days of the movement.

As a Sonoma County business, we’ve built enduring relationships with local growers, makers, and manufacturers, because they make the foods and wines we love. Many of them were getting started when we were. Now they are nationally known, but for us, they are still old friends who often delivered products to our Cotati store in their cars back in the late 1980s.

Along with local products being excellent choices for taste and quality reasons, buying locally also improves our local economy. The dollars you spend at local retailers buying local products support other local businesses and our tax base, too!
