Sebastopol CA (September 29, 2012)- After considering 153 names suggested from fans as far away as Canada and India, Taylor Maid Farms has chosen the name “Sweetwater” for its new espresso that will be released October 8, 2012.
Customer Cyndi Yoxall from Sebastopol inspired the name, which represents the espresso’s juicy-sweet flavor profile. Yoxall won 25 lbs. of the new coffee for home consumption. “Sweetwater” is also the name of a Sonoma County cycling trail, a fact that resonated with Taylor Maid Farms’ history of naming products after local hot spots like Goat Rock.

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.

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!
