So you know if you haven’t figured it out yet. I love 1) FOOD, 2) FARMERS MARKETS WITH FOOD, 3) ANTIQUES, 4) FLOWERS. I had mapped out our way from Mill Valley to Sonoma County with stops at the Marin County Farmer’s Market and in Petaluma to visit the Petaluma Heirloom Seed Bank. We were joining our friends in Sonoma County for dinner and a barbecue so I needed to find some goodies to bring along.
We picked up some local cheeses and assorted veggies for the cookout and then headed on north. The Petaluma Seed Bank is located in a historic bank building on the main drag through town. I had ordered from them online and wanted to visit in person since it was along the way. Luckily seed packets are very light and travel well as I loaded up on about 50 different kinds. www.rareseeds.com/petaluma–seed–bank/
I didn’t realize that Petaluma was such a neat little town filled with antique shops until we arrived! Much to Wally’s dismay… And they had REALLY COOL stores! I tried to hurry.. but look how AWESOME these stores and malls were!!!!
Wally patiently waiting outside as I drifted in and out of the stores.
After Wally begged me away from the antique shops, we headed north again on the backroads, with our next stop in the tiny town of Sebastapol.
