Locally Sourced + Crafted with Love


Celebrating Farm to Table with Seasonal Delights and Bounty


The Farmer’s Wife, the popular farmers market stand seen at the Ferry Building and festivals like Outside Lands, opened its first brick-and-mortar. Located in Sebastopol’s Barlow shopping complex, the cafe serves intricately layered sandwiches, open-faced tartines, soups, salads, and cookies, as well as an all-day breakfast menu.

The Farmer’s Wife only uses fresh, locally sourced, organic ingredients to craft our delicious menu. We support local farmers and businesses.

Our shop is counter service and outdoor patio seating only. Please check the forecast and dress accordingly during winter months. Food is also available for pick-up… give us a call to hear menu updates and daily specials.

You’ll also find a special Farmer’s Wife menu served at Crooked Goat Brewing.
