Seasonal Supper: A Field to Fork Dinner

Share an intimate evening with local farmers while you enjoy multiple courses highlighting the food they grow. The Seasonal Supper will be a true Field to Fork event hosted by the Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association at Hap Magee Ranch in Danville on Saturday, September 20th at 5PM.

Each course, delicately crafted by Chef Mario Hernandez, will feature the seasonal harvest from Tomatero Farm, Frog Hollow Farm, Happy Acre Farm and more producers from the Danville Farmers’ Market. Glennhawk Vineyards will be generously providing tastings and menu pairings of their wine selection, grown right here in Danville, adding to this truly local experience.

Participating Danville Farmers’ Market Farms and Producers:
Achadinha Cheese Co.
CMC Farms
Frog Hollow Farm
Glennhawk Vineyards
Happy Acre Farm
Prather Ranch
Sunrise Nursery
Tomatero Organic Farm

Enjoy farm-fresh food, live music, fine local wine, and a raffle benefiting nutritional education programs for low-income families of the Bay Area made possible by our sister organization, Fresh Approach.

Proceeds from this event will go to Fresh Approach programming and support the participating farms. Extra donations are gladly accepted. Many thanks to Glennhawk Vineyards for sponsoring this event.

All of your donations will support Fresh Approach and their efforts to increase healthy food access in the Bay Area.

Call To Action

More than ever, we need to hear the voice of people that understand the importance of taking action to preserve our environment for our children and future generations.
A dedicated group of volunteers have been working with Sustainable Danville Area to encourage the Town of Danville to pass a local ordinance to prohibit single-use plastic bags from all retail stores and restaurants within our community. (Yes, we will still have plastic bags for meat purchases and produce, and probably Styrofoam take-out containers, but we need to start someplace).
THAT’S WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP…Whether you are a resident of Danville or a valued visitor and shopper, we need your voice to be heard.   Please show your support with an email sent to:
  (PLEASE COPY US: SUSTAINABLEDANVILLE@GMAIL.COM)
Just one more thing…will you please share A LINK to this Call to Action with everyone within your network?  Now more than ever – we need to hear the voices of people that care.
Thank you so much for your time, Cynthia Ruzzi, Darlene Gayler and Cindy Egan

    I’m a Personal Chef and trying to research sustainable foods in Danville. I have had many requests from clients who are interested in locally grown foods fromthe area and I’m having trouble researching them. If you have any information you could send me or maybe local farmers I could contact I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you an best wishes,
