Oliver’s Markets 3rd Annual Taste of Sonoma County


Join us April 20th from 12-4pm at the Cotati Store for the Taste of Sonoma County, a showcase of our local vendors in Sonoma County. We will have over 30 local vendors sampling their products as well as 18 wineries pouring their Sonoma County wines. All proceeds from the wine tastings will benefit the Leadership Institute for Ecology and Economy. Tasting tickets are $3 for 5 tastings.

Local musicians from Oliver's Real Music Volumes 1 & 2 and the upcoming volume 3 will be performing live. See great acts like John Courage, Gatorbeat, Alison Harris, Prisma Trova, Levi Lloyd, and Onye Onyemeache. 

We will also have special activities for the kids, including face painting and livestock to pet.

The Redwood Empire Food Bank will be collecting non-perishable foods for donation.

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!
