Oliver’s plans Windsor store

By Clark Mason, The Press Democrat

It looks as if Windsor is finally going to get a supermarket on the west side of town.

Oliver's Market is planning to open a store near Windsor's Town Green as part of a large commercial-residential project approved Wednesday by the Town Council.

"We have a letter of intent with Oliver's Market to be the anchor for the grocery store. It's fantastic," said Jeff Civian, the project civil engineer for Bell Village, one of the biggest developments proposed in Windsor for years

Crab lovers snap up season’s first catch

By Cathy Bussewitz, The Press Democrat

“Give me two of the largest you've got,” said Frank Haeg as he leaned into the crab counter at Oliver's Market on Thursday.

The 78-year-old Santa Rosa man was one of hundreds of customers around Sonoma County who were finally getting a long-awaited taste of locally caught Dungeness crab.

The commercial fishing season began Monday after a two-week delay as fishermen and processors sat in a stalemate over the price. The parties settled at $2.25 a pound after some boats from Oregon set out and dropped their pots, and the race to catch the crustaceans was on. Crab began showing up at some local supermarkets on Wednesday.

Planning Commission approves Cotati roundabouts

By Jeremy Hay, The Press Democrat

A controversial $3.5 million plan to narrow Cotati’s main street to two lanes with two roundabouts is headed to the City Council.

“The question is cost, safety and aesthetics, and the Village Mainstreet concept hits all three criteria,” said Planning Commissioner Tim Ritter, using the name given to the street plan.

The redesign of the short stretch of Old Redwood Highway was proposed by city staff as part of a long-sought overhaul of the city’s commercial center. It was opposed by Oliver’s Markets and other downtown merchants who say the plan would hurt their businesses by constricting traffic.

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!
