For Foodies

Petaluma’s connection to great food goes back to when the city blossomed along the banks of the Petaluma River. The fertile soil and mild climate made it possible for Petaluma to share it's bounty of poultry and produce with the booming Gold Rush cities of San Francisco and Oakland. The tradition continues today in our award-winning restaurants serving farm-to-table cuisine, organic dairies and artisan cheese producers, and farmers’ markets and farm tours.
