Balboa Cafe in downtown historic Mill Valley follows the same tradition and spirit of Balboa Cafe in San Francisco as the "in" place to eat, drink and make merry. Executive Chef Rick Edge builds upon the classic Balboa Cafe menu while focusing on organic, sustainable and local products. Here we explore Rick's culinary relationship with Balboa Mill Valley's main produce provider: Sonoma farmer Lazaro Calderon.
Lazaro's farm, The Patch, boasts the best-selling tomatoes at Sonoma County Farmers' Markets. Visit The Patch at 280 Second St. E. in Sonoma, just west of the town square. The farmstand is open daily from May through Thanksgiving.
