Sure, there’s the sunshine, fog and fresh ocean air. But there’s also a certain sense of wildness that makes everything grown in and around Fort Bragg taste so much better. The North Coast has long been home to farmsteaders intent on keeping things close to the earth. Hand grown. Compassionately raised. Call it “Small Ag,” but just don’t call us late to a delicious, locally-harvested dinner.  

Fort Bragg Farmers Market

Every Wednesday in Downtown Fort Bragg this market features local, seasonal produce, free-range meats and eggs, wild-caught local seafood and so much more. Try the organic mushrooms from the Forest People, naturally leavened sourdough from Pelican Bread, wild-crafted kombucha from Wilder Ferments, and bring home a plant from Fort Bragg Carnivores as a keepsake. 

Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens 

This nonprofit botanical escape is a place to play, to contemplate, to learn, to relax, to touch, to smell, to feel, to enjoy, to be inspired, and to experience the simple joy and beauty of life. Come by on the first Saturday of every month for Mendocino Coast Audubon Beginner Walks.
