Chilling and Munching Sebastopol Style

Last Sunday we took a drive to the Sebastopol Farmer's Market. It is a smallish market but makes up for its size with a great variety of pristine produce, colorful products and a laid back atmosphere. There were couples cuddling and parents with young children dancing in front of the bandstand. We staked out a bench and sipped coffee from Run Around Brew. The coffee was wonderful but I kept hearing the lyrics from Run Around Sue roll around in my head. I hate when that happens.

We had plans for lunch to follow our visit but as we people-watched, we kept seeing wonderful looking pizzas from a mobile oven pass in front of us. We decided we must change our lunch plans. The wife wanted to try the sausage pizza so I went to the counter and inadvertently ordered what I always get, a pepperoni pizza. Well, my bad. This pizza rocks! I asked the chef if he also had a restaurant and he provided a card for Rosso Pizzeria and wine bar in Santa Rosa. They have a cool logo to match the great pizza. After a little internet research I find that Chef John Franchetti has worked at some high end venues and opened his Santa Rosa restaurant to great reviews. We will be checking that out soon but for now we will be chilling and munching pizza at the market.
Rosso pizza - Delicious!

Those red pears are beautiful!
Sounds like a nice experience.
Did you get to the Gravenstein Festival? We didn't. Never have. Costs too much to get in.
Pizza! I miss pizza.

Sounds like a perfect day, except for the pepperoni oops.
