Looking for an adventure this weekend? Get in your car and head two hours away for culinary delights you don’t want to miss. Around 100 miles from Sacramento, you will find the charming town of Sebastopol. What once was a plum and apple-growing region now features many vineyards.
Start your day off by grabbing breakfast at Wild Flour Bread. This wood fire bakery features a large assortment of fresh breads and pastries. They open at 8:30 am with their warm cheese fougasse, sticky buns, and whipping cream scones. Samples are always allowed and you will often get a loaf right out of the oven. They make over 900 fresh loaves daily and sell only in their bakery.
Next stop on your culinary adventure is Andy’s Produce Market. Andy’s is one of the largest open-air farm produce markets in Northern California. They offer locally grown fruits and vegetables. Grab some fresh produce and snacks and enjoy them during your drive.
You won’t want to miss stopping by Kozlowski Farms. You will get a chance to sample the gourmet foods, which are made on site. Kozlowski’s makes some of the best pies that you will ever try. They feature a fantastic pecan crumb topping and come in many berry flavors. All the berries come straight from the farm. You can also experience their old-fashioned jams, fruit spreads, fruit butters, gourmet mustards, and chocolate sauces.
Looking for more sweets? You have got to check out Screamin Mimi’s Ice Cream. This is a local institution, which serves all natural frozen treats. Their Ice Cream is made on site and is priced by weight at 62 cents per ounce. You will be screaming with delight for this Ice Creamery.
Not too far from Mimi’s you will find a relaxed place. The Infusions Tea Shop will delight your taste buds with their organic loose-leaf teas. The owners can often be seen serving you and providing great tea recommendations. Infusions also sells their own handmade chocolates.
If you are feeling a bit weighed down by all these yummy treats, it must be time to “cool off”. Drive about 14 more miles to the Russian River where you can float and soak your way through beautiful redwood trees.
