This was my second visit to the plaza. The first visit was rushed due to being on a tour to the area. This time around I got to walk the plaza and even stop into the park and relax for a few. Nice shops but the people were not very friendly. However I did not let this stop me. Take... More

What a great farmers market! Good food, great set up for food, drink and produce. Entertainment was excellent and the evening timeframe sets a wonderful time to enjoy all the vendors and music. Good food is waiting for any taste.

Visiting the square is a must when you are in Sonoma Valley. There is a variety of shops and restaurants to check out. I always hit up Sonoma Jacks. Its a fun stop if you love cheese, and what right minded person doesn't. The square is also a nice place for a picnic or a nap.....

This is just a great place to relax or walk though/around. Great for people watching and relaxing after a long day. Plenty of giant shade trees to enjoy a break from the summer sun.

This is a fun, all-weather location where you can spend the day browsing unusual shops, dining from A to Z, and wine tasting in several local tasting rooms, as well as exploring the old Sonoma Mission and soldiers' barracks. There are a number of short treks off the square where you can find more wine tasting rooms, shops and a... More

A good variety of shops (clothing, home decor), art galleries, and restaurants surround the square and make for a fun, entertaining afternoon. Weekends bring events to the square - art shows, festivals, or artisans selling their creations. I'm local, head up to Sonoma regularly, and never tire of spending time on the square.
