In 1989 the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce led business and community leaders to San Luis Obispo to witness the cities community Farmer's Market. That same year Santa Rosa premiered Wednesday Night Market in Downtown, and has been returning every summer to bring together the people of Santa Rosa.


For 28 years the Santa Rosa Downtown Market has strived to create a family friendly atmosphere and celebrate our local artists, entertainers, chefs, and all that makes Sonoma County great.
