Happy Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day, Sonoma County! This is a great time of year for all of us to focus our sustainability efforts in our homes and businesses. One great way to be sustainable is to buy from local companies whenever possible.

Buying local supports a more sustainable food system and minimizes the resources used in food production that bring our food from farm to plate. The biggest savings come in transportation, but there are many more. You can read all about the benefits of shopping local at www.oliversmarket.com

For the past four years we have hosted the “Taste of Sonoma”  at our Cotati Store to help our customers discover local products and learn about the benefits of buying locally produced products at a locally owned business. We are sorry that our 2015 Oliver’s Taste of Sonoma event that is normally scheduled around Earth Day was cancelled this year.

There was sadly no choice for us in this decision. It was the result of changes in California ABC laws relating to tasting events being held in partnership with retailers, which is no longer allowed. Without the traditional beer and wine tasting component at the event, we did not want to risk disappointing our customers or delivering a less than stellar party for you.

But fear not! We hope to offer more ways to celebrate our local producers in coming months, and will post that information when it is available.
