A highlight of the market is Goodman's Jewish Deli, offering all manner of kosher delights, including their own pastrami. The Rains, a husband and wife Americana duo, will provide live music throughout the day. The market continues with its matching grant for CalFresh shoppers. The market takes place every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

<b>Polynesian Wayfinding at SRJC:</b> Starting Friday, the Santa Rosa Junior College Planetarium features the world's greatest navigators, the Polynesians, who traveled the Pacific for thousands of years, using their deep knowledge of the stars to guide them.
