On Saturday, the Santa Rosa Original Farmers Market will offer free valet bike parking from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Riders will thanked for their physical–and environmental–efforts with a $2 market voucher (good for any market purchase), a complimentary cookie and free coffee. There will also be a drawing for a child’s bike, donated by REI.
This Saturday is the third week in a four-week spring gardening series at the market. There will be information about selecting the right plants for your garden, along with a free basil seedling in a compostable container. The final week, next Saturday–May 5–features free pumpkin plants.
