If you go to the Sonoma Plaza, secure a ride back to your hotel or book a hotel within walking distance. Even if you are not going to drink, good luck parking your car. Every other building has a wine tasting from local vineyards that are worth trying. There are a ton of restaurants that are good for breakfast and... More

We've visited here before and really enjoyed the plaza shops and the park in the middle. During our most recent stay at a family home in Kenwood, we visited Sonoma for 1 evening. The Sonoma July 4th celebration was recommended. Unfortunately, the official party had ended at 5, and we arrived just before 6:00--our bad luck. We weren't impressed with... More

Pretty neat downtown area that Sonoma has really capitalized on, having such a gem and knowing it is so refreshing. So many places you go and see something like this squandered because of lack of foresight. Really enjoyed the little shops and shady park like setting in the middle to just unwind. Enjoyed the area so much came back later... More

The Farmers’ Market on Tuesday nights in Sonoma Plaza is much more than the typical farmers’ market of fresh produce and jams. Yes, there are some produce stands but, it is more of a street fair with a variety of food stands, crafts, live music, and people lounging on the lawn. It is definitely worth a visit at that time...

This is what you expect or hope for in a small town farmers market. Lots of truck food, baked goods, drinks, exceptional artisan bread and flat bread baked on the spot and of course fresh produce and flowers. Pick a spot under the trees, enjoy food and wine (legal in this park), and let kids run around. We flew paper... More

The Plaza is the centre of the beautiful town of Sonoma. It is a very vibrant area with City Hall in the centre, surrounded by a park and then on all four sides by businesses such as shops, restaurants, wine tasting rooms. It is an easy place to stroll around. Loads of people were enjoying the sunshine in the park.... More

So this is kind of the center of the universe for Sonoma. First with the beautiful little well treed community park n the middle of the square....you feel very welcomed. And there is the usual mix of restaurants, a small hotel or two, eateries, tasting rooms and shops. You've been here before, just somewhere different. The shops are cool, there... More

The plaza is the center of town. There are so many shops, restaurants, galleries etc surrounding the square. We absolutely love the pond with ducks etc. The kids are amazed at seeing them waddle. The plaza is also great for picnics. You can get food at the nearby stores.

The square has many boutiques and restaurants....which are some of the best you'll find. Oso, The Girl and The Fig and Swisshotel are some of the few. On Tuesday evenings during the summer, there is a farmers market complete with food trucks and live music. A great way to blend with the locals on a beautiful Sonoma evening!
