Feast on nachos, tostadas, tacos, and cheesecake at the Brentwood Farmers Market from 9am-2pm!

Every Sunday

Sundays at the Gentle Barn

Every Sunday

Kick it with the animals you save from enjoying a plant-based diet at The Gentle Barn.

Smorgasburg

Every Sunday

This month’s Smorg Tip: Try Mama Musubi Gourmet’s Rice Balls. Their Japanese Onigiri, aka seaweed-wrapped rice balls with various fillings, highlight why we love Japanese food: simple flavors executed perfectly. Order their Kelp & Rayu Onigiri, filled with garlic and chili seasoned seaweed, which is a delicious and honest representation of Japanese cuisine.
