Good place to pick up your weekly fruits and vegetables. Late summer through late fall you can get the very best fruit and all fresh! Atmosphere is very nice for a family visit.

They have a great variety of food. From produce to baked goods to wine. You can have a hot sandwich while enjoying the view of the hills. Staff is always friendly. It is also dog friendly.
