What’s In Store: Bill’s Farm Basket changes hands
Bill’s Farm Basket changed hands Oct. 17, and if you didn’t notice, there’s a good reason. Jim Bowen and Debbie Martinez, the former owners sold it to their long time employee David Diaz.
Diaz has worked there for seven years and plans to keep Bill’s the same with just one difference – his younger sister Kayla, who is interested in photography, will decorate the place with photos of Sonoma County’s beaches. It is becoming a family affair – Grandma Diaz makes the salsas and brother Anthony as well as Kayla works at the farm stand.
Bowen and Martinez have retained ownership of Pony Espresso Coffee Shop and are around to help Diaz. The hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day except Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Bill’s Farm Basket is located at 10315 Bodega Highway, between Sebastopol and Freestone, 829-1777.
