About the Half Moon Bay International Marathon:

Featuring "26.2 Miles of Running Heaven", the Half Moon Bay International Marathon (HMBIM) was founded in 2011 to showcase the unique beauty of the California coast along with some of the best weather a marathon athlete could ever hope for. The inaugural event in 2011 featured athletes from 25 states and 4 countries and sold out in two months despite very little promotion. An official Boston Qualifier event sanctioned by the USA Track and Field organization, the HMBIM also focused on creating an eco-friendly event to consider the precious coastal community and worked to attain official status with the Council for Responsible Sport, receiving the coveted Gold Certification from this organization in the Event's very first year. The HMBIM features a full and half marathon and 10k and 5k events all on the same day.

Claire Straka-Ellis - Eclarity art and Kathena Avelon of Deux Amies Jewelry

Many of their customers return time after time to add to their collections of Deux Amies jewelry.


Denise King- Tangled Chains


Denise King is a self-taught artist. Born in 1955 in Southern California, Denise took to creating art as soon as she was able to hold a crayon. She would often find silly objects like discarded flash bulbs and pipe cleaners and turn them into bouquets of flowers. Years of artistic suppression was finally overcome when she moved to the coast in Northern California10 years ago. The salty air and daily walks on the beach made it clear that now Denise's life would be centered around her passion for creating. About 3 years ago, with the encouragement of her husband her weekends became retreats into the garage where she put beach glass and grout together to make her first mosaic. Then she started adding decoration to the dozens of sea urchins collected from the sands and finally from a tangled mess of old necklace chains and seashells she designed her first necklace. Denise now devotes all her spare time to creating her necklaces and turning her beach artifacts into art to share with everyone. From all of this was born TANGLED CHAIN CREATIONS, what I fondly call "an eclectic collection of jewelry and art". Walks at the beach still include Haley & Max, her favorite four-legged children, her number one fan Gregg, her husband, and a group of other dog lovers and artistic types who offer encouragement and support as well as laughs and enduring friendship.My work can be found at www.TangledChainCreations.com and at my Etsy shop, tangledchaincreation. However, to find the most up-to-the-minute creations look for me at the Harbor Village Farmer's Market or other craft fairs in the local area.

Amy Perrier

I grew up in Folsom CA and now live in San Francisco and work at a health IT company. I started making my garden art in April of 2012 when I saw these featured on a blog. I fell in love with them, and I have always loved the idea of taking something created for one thing but finding other purposes for them. My Garden Flower Plates have inspired me to move on to other projects such as making chairs out of old suitcases, terrariums, and making wine bottles into hanging plant pots. I hope you enjoy these beautiful hand crafted pieces as much as I do. www.etsy.com/shop/Bloomsticks

Biography and Career Overview

San Francisco native and resident singer/songwriter/actress/journalist/author Kimberlye Gold has been pursuing her dream and perfecting her craft since birth (her mother had her birth announcement printed as a theater ticket, "It's A Girl"). Before she could see over the dashboard, she was already writing poetry and songs and singing in talent contests. (She insisted on delivering the entire “Twelve Days of Christmas” at a summer vacation resort called Hobergs when she was five for the mostly Jewish vacationers.) Beginning with the award-winning San Francisco rock 'n roll musical comedy, Breakfast In Marin, starring as "Sunny" when she was a teenager, she is no stranger to the stages and recording studios of San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Nashville and London. About a decade ago, Kimberlye added “journalist” to her multi-media cap. When she's not performing at venues such as Biscuits ‘N Blues in San Francisco, Molly Malone’s in Los Angeles, The Bitter End in New York City, The Bluebird Cafe in Nashville and 12 Bar in London, Kimberlye has been a music critic and writer of the hilarious column, "Almost Famous: My Adventures as a SF Entertainment Journalist" for the San Francisco Herald, which won "Best Neighborhood Newspaper" in SF Weekly's "Best of 2001" issue. She is also a freelance writer for various publications across the country including the San Francisco Chronicle, SF Weekly, Time Out New York, Gig Magazine, The Tennessean, The Dallas Observer, The Minneapolis Star Tribune, and was a regular contributor on the sadly-defunct online magazine Grapevine Culture. Having been christened "The Carrie Bradshaw of R&R" and The Carrie Bradshaw of SF", Kimberlye is currently working on a book based on her "Almost Famous" columns, much like Ms. Bradshaw did in Sex & The City, and her friend and mentor Ben Fong-Torres’ Becoming Almost Famous collection of his favorite Rolling Stone interviews.

Kimberlye's latest release, Sycamore Street, is a blend of funky pop and acoustic ballads, a little bit country and a little bit rock ‘n roll, ala her contemporary Sheryl Crow. Veteran NY jazz singer Rosemary Conte calls Kimberlye "an angel with an edge". Kimberlye's song "Rope Of Faith" is a haunting ballad inspired by an encouraging phone call and subsequent meeting with Irish actor Gabriel Byrne, after he heard her music. “I listened to Kimberlye’s voice so loud, so many times, my neighbors started pounding on the walls!” he recalled. She recorded “Rope Of Faith” in a traditional Celtic style as a tribute to his support and kindness. "Rope of Faith" was also the song she sang at her dad's memorial service. "It was one of his favorites," she says. Other songs such as the gritty “Nothin’ I Don’t Already Know” and the hypnotic title track "Sycamore Street" have critics and music fans singing her praises. Peter Cooper, music critic for The Tennessean, writes, "Her voice is the most striking element, I think; full and pretty, yet distinctive. The songwriting is really good as well." Ben Fong-Torres, author/journalist & former senior editor of Rolling Stone states, "Kimberlye has a way with words and music. Her songs are based as much on heart and soul as they are on rock & roll, folk, country and the blues. Her voice, pretty, strong and rocking, is equally adept at covering all those musical bases and more. I love meeting Kimberlye on Sycamore Street". Steve Massam/BBC Radio, notes "Kimberlye is a breath of fresh air; she sings from the heart with true feeling and passion. She can rock, yet has a quality in her voice that easily compares with Emmylou Harris or Allison Krauss." Paul Rodgers, lead singer/frontman for Bad Company and Queen (and three-time Kimberlye Gold interview subject) croons, “Really great. Kimberlye is a true singer.” The late Ian Copeland, former booking agent for F.B.I. (The Police, Blondie, the Go Gos), author and owner of the Backstage CafĂ© in Beverly Hills, raved, "Absolutely brilliant. Her voice, and especially the lyrical content are just fantastic. She has an open invitation to play the Backstage." Recently at a gig at Taix in LA’s trendy Echo Park, a new fan was so impressed he shot the whole show and uploaded it on youtube, exclaiming, “Kimberlye is gorgeous and can belt it out like very few others these days!” One of her audience members celebrating his 50th birthday said, “I’m single but I could marry your VOICE!”

Kimberlye performs at many charity and benefit events for local school music programs and performs at retirement homes and senior centers all over the Bay Area. She has regular spots where the residents know all the words to her songs as well as the standards. "I rock the rocking chair set!" she jokes.

Kimberlye has written/recorded and/or performed music/shared the stage with songwriters and producers as diverse as Narada Michael Walden (Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston) Frank Wildhorn (Jeckyl & Hyde), Trevor Gale ("Running To You" - Vanessa Williams), Kostas ("I Can Love You Better Than That" - Dixie Chicks), John Bettis ("Top Of The World" - The Carpenters, "One Moment In Time" - Whitney Houston, "Crazy For You" - Madonna) Michael Garvin ("Waiting For Tonight" - Jennifer Lopez), Billy Lee ("The One" - Gary Allan), and Holly Lamar ("Breathe" - Faith Hill). Kimberlye and Holly co-wrote "Don't Maybe Me", a cut on Atlantic Records recording artist Mila Mason's CD, The Strong One. Kimberlye’s song, “Show Me”, co-written with David Vaughn won “Best Song” for the 2006 West Coast Songwriters Northern California Open Mic Competition. Her song, “Sycamore Street”, co-written with Johnny Douglas won the same award for the 2007 competition and was judged "North Bay Area Song Of The Year” by a panel of music industry pros. Kimberlye’s song “I Ain’t Tammy”, co-written with Jack Williams won an Honorable Mention for Billboard Magazine’s World Music Awards in 2007.

Kimberlye has also created work in films and television. “The Sound of Your Voice” (co-written with Ralph Friedrichsen), “Ready To Let You In” (co-written with Brenda Warren) and “Beyond The Night” (co-written with Stan Bush, Kevin Dukes and Joey Sykes) were recently featured on the ABC Daytime drama All My Children. "One More Reason", (co-written with David Gregoli) was featured in the film A Time To Die (w/ Richard Roundtree, Jeff Conaway and Traci Lords). Her song, "Countdown To Love" (co-written with Paul Sabu), was included in the TV movie, Secrets between Friends on NBC & Lifetime. Kimberlye performed the theme song for the Bikini Open, co-written with Mark & Steve Collins, on pay-per-view TV and international syndication. Most recently, Kimberlye’s song, “Sycamore Street” is featured in the independent film 9:04 AM, which premiered at the West Palm Beach Film Festival and is currently screening in festivals across the country.

While in LA, Kimberlye studied acting at Sanford Meisner's school Neighborhood Playhouse West, under the tutelage of Bob Carneghie. Former grads included Robert Duvall and Robert DiNiro, while fellow students included Jeff Goldblum and Michelle Pfeiffer. Kimberlye was featured as the bass player in the all-girl band at the high school Halloween dance in the Jim Carrey/Lauren Hutton film, Once Bitten. She has also been featured in several music videos with artists as diverse as REO Speedwagon and Mick Jagger, as well as films and TV series like Perfect starring Jamie Lee Curtis and John Travolta and Square Pegs starring Sarah Jessica Parker. Most recently, she has appeared the film Moneyball starring Brad Pitt and on the NBC TV series Trauma as a patient. She’s been a featured actress on the Investigation Discovery channel docudrama I (ALMOST) GOT AWAY WITH IT.

Kimberlye was a co-writer, producer, and background vocalist on English country artist Valerie Jay's sophomore CD, Pacific Time at Hyde Street Studios in San Francisco.

Kimberlye is currently working on her sophomore CD with SF producer Tru.

6 Tips for Farmers Market Buying!

8 Tips for Farmers Market  Buying!

Shopping at farmers markets is the easiest way to eat locally. You know where the food comes from. After all, the grower is right there and you can ask them. A bit of planning can keep weekly shopping for produce at a farmers market fun and make cooking a snap all week long.

1. Go Early or Go Late. Markets tend to be less crowded right when they open or just before they close (there are many, many exceptions to this, so try going to your market at different times to figure out the best time for you). For the best selection, go to the farmers market early. The best goods go first. Popular-but-limited items may even sell out before the day is done. It’s as simple as that. For the best deals, go to the farmers market late. Farmers and other vendors often prefer to discount products instead of loading them back up and schlepping them home. (Check out these other Tips to Save Money at Farmers Markets.) Farmers raise this food for a living, however, so don't expect or ask for deep discounts. Importantly, some markets have rules against end-of-the-day discounts.

2. Bring Big Bags & Small Change. Some farmers market vendors offer bags, but they tend to be thin and flimsy plastic ones that groan under the pressure of any substantial produce purchase. Make sure everything gets home from the farmers market without crashing onto the sidewalk or spilling onto the floor of your car by bringing your own sturdy canvas or nylon bags. A backpack can make the hauling easier, especially for weighty or bulky items. Although vendors will make change, purchases will go easier and faster if you have exact (or close to exact) change. At some farmers markets "small change" means dimes and nickels. In larger urban areas many products at farmers markets are sold in dollar or fifty-cent increments.

3. Sketch Meals Ahead of Time. Since you know what you're likely to find at the farmers market, you can do a bit of meal planning and shop accordingly. For example, if local asparagus has just come into season and you can't get enough, you know you'll want to eat some Roasted Asparagus, some cooked into a Asparagus Chickpea Soup, and some sliced raw in an Asparagus Butter Lettuce Salad. So you'll know both how many bunches of asparagus to buy and that you'll also need some spring onions or herbs to add to the soup and some salad greens. Yes, you’ll fare better if you plan your trip to the farmers market. However, you need to leave a bit of wiggle room for those strawberries you didn't know would be at market so early, or the zucchini blossoms you've never tried before. Trying new things is part of the fun of going to farmers markets.

4. Work In Volume. The best deals at the farmers market are had when you buy in bulk. You'll enjoy the best flavors and the best prices when you buy lots of whatever is at its harvest peak. How to use it all up? Try new recipes with favorite vegetables or learn the lost art of preserving food. Freezing, canning, and drying are just some of the ways you can save seasonal tastes you find at the farmers market for later in the year.

5. Think "Whole Foods". No, not that “Whole Foods” – think in terms of how food grows and comes to the farmers market without being processed first. Carrots come whole and unpeeled. Beets still have greens (and dirt) attached. Learning to handle just-harvested produce can take some getting used to, but the superior flavor is worth the adjustment.

6. Get Advice. If you find a vegetable that’s new to you at the farmers market and want to give it a try, ask the farmer how to prepare it. For the best tips specifically ask how they like to eat it.

New Vendor: Leftcoast Grassfed tips on cooking quality beef!



First off…
grass-fed Beef is a little different from grain-fed beef, as it has a lower fat content, so cooking it is a little more complex. We suggest you cook on a lower heat and cook to medium rare to rare (see our suggestions and tips). If you over cook grass-fed beef, it tends to be tough and chewy (think, shoe leather). Grass-fed beef is delicious if prepared properly. The secret is in the cooking. With a lower fat content, grass-fed beef can cook 30% faster than grain-fed store bought beef.
Some basic tips:
  • Never use a microwave to thaw your grass-fed beef
  • If time allows, bring your grass-fed meat to room temperature before cooking
  • Always preheat your oven, pan, or grill before cooking your grass-fed beef
Suggested Cooking Temperatures
The following are recommended final temperatures for meats. Remove meat from the heat source 5-10 degrees prior to achieving the desired temperature and allow them to finish cooking via residual heat.
Rare – 120 degrees
Medium rare – 125 degrees
Medium – 130 degrees
Medium well – 135 degrees (NOT RECOMMENDED)
Well – 140 degrees (NEVER)
Steaks are intended for rare to medium-rare cooking. If you like well-done beef, then cook grass-fed beef cuts in smaller pieces at very low temperatures in a sauce to add moisture.

New Vendor: Leftcoast Grassfed! Know Your Beef

At Leftcoast™ Grassfed, we feel allowing our cattle to free forage on the natural grasses is the best way to take care of our land and a more humane way to take care of our animals. With a healthier animal, we can offer a healthier cut of meat.
Research shows that grass-fed beef are leaner and more nutritious and that beef from grass-fed animals have higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids. And that’s important because Omega-3 fatty acids are known to help reduce the risk of heart disease and stroke, reduce symptoms of hypertension, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), joint pain, and numerous other benefits. Grass-fed beef also has more conjugated linoleic acid (cancer-fighting properties), vitamins A and E, and lower levels of dietary cholesterol.

Research also shows grassfed beef to be lower in fat and cholesterol and less likely to contain harmful E. coli bacteria.
And by rotating our cattle periodically, we not only provide the best forage Mother Nature provides, but we are helping to limit our carbon footprint on the environment.
We choose to produce and sell our grass-fed beef as a locally-grown product to sustain both our ranch and our local community.

LEFTCOAST GRASSFED - We raise certified Food Alliance, American Grassfed, and Animal Welfare Approved cattle for quality grass-fed beef in the San Francisco Bay area. You can follow our tweets at http://www.twitter.com/lcgrassfed or add us at http://www.facebook.com/leftcoast.grassfed

Launching April 22, 2012 at Harbor Village is the farmers market from 10-4 that is year round and in conjunction with this is going to be arts and crafts fair.

            We are excited to launch Arts and Crafts Fair at Harbor Village in conjunction with are farmers market. We are going to have local vendors producing all types of value added items.

We are very proud to launch this with local artists that will add great value to our area. Make sure you are here or you will miss out.

Organic Farming




One of the most important things to consider is just because a vendor does not have a certified Organic license issued they still might use organic practices. The hardest part of becoming a qualified organic vendor sometimes is the process that many do not go through.  While there’s no formal or universal definition for organic farming, it can be defined as one or more systems of production which don’t use synthetic fertilizers, man-made pesticides, herbicides, growth regulators, antibiotics, hormone stimulants and/or livestock feed additives to grow crops and raise animals. Organic farmers that raise livestock and animals are deemed not to use hormones, antibiotics, or food that uses synthetic fertilizers. Farmers that uses practice these technique uses the environments own ecosystems to their advantage, by recycling, reusing, and renewing life. The return what would be waste into their ecosystems causing little carbon footprints. Although we believe Organic Farming a great way to produce goods we do not believe in no way it is the only way. We believe in all types of farming to promote health and protect the end consumer.

Our Farmers Market Begins April 22, 2012 at Harbor Village Mall at 270 capistrano road Half Moon Bay Ca 94019 Sundays Year Round 10-4

How to sell at a certified farmers market: Agriculture and Non- Agriculture






Oh the season has begun for farmers, producers, and food enthusiasts around California. For what you might ask? Farmers Markets! We are excited to launch our farmers market April 22 2012 on Sundays from 10-4 at Harbor Village in Half Moon Bay. We want to invite everyone out. Most people know how to find farmers markets, but most people do not how to get certified to sell at one. We want to lay out a quick guide on getting approved to sell in California. You have to be approved to sell at the market by the governing association before market managers can accept you.




Some things you will need and need to know
• The need for certification as a producer (if you wish to sell at a certified farmers' market)
• the need to meet labeling requirements -- particularly if selling prepackaged or closed container products, or selling for commercial resale
• The need for a health department permit if selling non-agricultural food products
• Specifications as to "organic" labeling.




If you are interested in becoming a Certified Producer, please contact the county office in which the market is located or in which you wish to sell your commodity.
Apply online: http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/egov/farmersmarket/
http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/is/apply_register.html


For San Mateo County producers certificate contact:
Erin Herbst. Biologist/Standards Specialist. San Mateo County Dept. of Agriculture/Weights & Measures. (650) 363-4700. eherbst@smcgov.org
1220 N Street, Sacramento, CA 95814 • (916) 900-5030 FAX (916) 900-5347 • email: cfm@cdfa.ca.gov

For Non- agriculture products:
All most go through county of the governing health department. If you are a producer you do not need to go through department of health, and vise versa. Department of health is only for non-agriculture goods.
For all non-agriculture items our governing body is San Mateo County Health Department.
Contact: Aniie Nantz Contact 650-372-6288. http://www.smchealth.org/

After you have all this, typically, the Market Manager decides who gets to sell at that market. Selection criteria vary by market or group of markets. Once you have compliance from these levels you will have access to start selling at all farmers markets in California. We hope this has helped you in becoming a vendor.

Pest Control Techniques- Chemical and Organic




Pest Control Techniques -Chemical and Organic


There are many different techniques for pest control on farms and gardens that you can use and we want to share a few with you. The first way is with chemical controls that you can apply, which can reduce the pest population very fast. The problem with this is that in the long-run it causes an increase in pests because the repeated use of chemical products creates immunities and resistant’s of organisms you are try to get rid of.
In contrast to chemical horticulture, organic horticulture is a much better long term solution, but requires understanding of many scientific factors, and pest life cycle sequences. Organically farming techniques proves to be much harder, but does create beneficial externalities for consumers, and the environment. Some of these net effects are soil protection, better fertilization, pollination, water conservation and season extension. These benefits are both complementary and cumulative in overall effect on site health. These are some techniques that you must consider and that could help you with your garden or farm.
-Allow for a level of pest damage to what you are growing.

-Planting and encouraging beneficial insects to flourish and eat other pests

-Encouraging beneficial microorganisms

-Choosing disease-resistant varieties

-Planting companion crops
-Using row covers to protect crop plants during pest migration periods

-Rotating crops to different locations to throw off pest reproduction cycles

-Using traps to control pest populations

Our Farmers Market at Harbor Village launches April 22, 2012 and is Every Sunday in the Harbor of Half Moon Bay from 10-4. Sponsored and supported by Oceano Hotel and Spa and the Shops at Harbor Village 270 capistrano road Half Moon Bay, ca 94019
