We Love Good Food!

Thank you for visiting our website. Surf Market was founded in 1956 to serve the needs of the logging, hunting, and fishing community of Gualala. Since that time we have grown from a 3 person mom-and-pop, to the largest supermarket in our area with a well trained staff of 45, our products come from the best producers and food gardens to give the best to our clients.

In the old days, you could find frozen meat just down the aisle from the gun and ammunition selection. Today, 60 years later, we offer an amazing selection of quality products featuring locally made artisan foods, sustainable seafood, local and organic produce, specialty cheeses, hot and cold deli offerings, a large hand picked selection of wine and spirits, and yummy baked goods. In addition, we have one of the finest meat departments in Northern California. We invite you to explore our website and enjoy information and photos about our departments, products, and team members. We look forward to seeing you at the market.

Warm regards,

Looking for some adventure in your cooking routines? Take your palate on a journey through incredible flavors of Sephardic and Middle Eastern Jewish cuisine with @nyshuk. All of these goods can be used with great versatility across all types of foods: grains, pasta, vegetables, fish, meats and more. Perfect in stews, soups, sauces, marinades and rubs. Preserved Lemon Harissa: bold, vibrant flavors surrounded by bright citrus. Gentle on heat, enormous on depth and dimension.
Baharat: This all purpose spice blend is versatile and exotic. Made with rose petals, cinnamon, black pepper, cumin.
Rosey Harissa: sun dried chili peppers and delicate rose petals add gentle heat and aromatic floral flavors to absolutely everything.
Za’atar: with hints of oregano, mint, marjoram and thyme, this particular blend is based on an ancient recipe from Jerusalem. Sumac, sesame seeds and roasted chickpeas are the magic ingredients which will have you reaching for this jar over and over again.
Ras El Hanout: translated this means “head of the shop”. Spice vendors across North Africa each have their own blend and this particular one comes from Ron’s (one of the owners of @nyshuk )family in Morocco. Warm, wild, transportive flavors. Elevate your cooking experience, enter a new dimension of flavor. Find @nyshuk in our spice aisle and on the end cap closest to our Produce Department. Spice it UP! 🌿

Well, these products just soared to the top of our FAVORITES list. Three incredibly delicious products from the 3 Soom Sisters @soomfoods have arrived here at Surf Market! Single-sourced origin tahini, premium silan -a decadent date syrup which is an excellent alternative to honey and refined sugar and... our new true love ❤️ chocolate sweet tahini halva spread. Whoa. If you are a fan of Nutella, get ready to have your mind blown. We spread ours on some toasted whole wheat @pelican_bread and a with a shot of espresso. Pure heaven. The attention to detail in the making of these goods can’t be denied- they are astounding. Find all three in our nut butter aisle. Welcome to Surf Market @soomfoods!

When was the last time you had an ice cream cone? 🍦 We can almost guarantee it will take you straight back to your childhood days. And, did you know we carry the wildly popular @humphryslocombe ice cream made in San Francisco? We mounded a big old scoop of their incredible black sesame ice cream (hello toasty-peanut-buttery-sesame flavor) on to a classic sugar cone. Cool down, slow down, and eat desserts first. 🍦

Clothing is BACK at Surf Market. There are some new rules (you knew that was coming 😊) but we’re more than proud to be back and supporting two local makers and designers: @bargenorthco and @northcoastbrine. We received these amazing MENDO sweatshirts about 7 days before the Department of Public Health ordered all items that needed to be tried on had to be removed from the sales floor. To say this was heartbreaking for Kristen Young of @bargenorthco, Emma Hurley from @northcoastbrine, ourselves and our customers is an understatement. But here we ARE! Clothing (and hats) cannot be returned, exchanged or tried on. 🌿All sales are final. 🌿 Each item is individually wrapped (please recycle) for safety and protection, sizes are clearly marked, and items are designated as men’s women’s or unisex. And, we have plenty of our best-selling @mercantile12 for @truebytruebrands Surf Market Happy Place Mugs in stock. Rise and shine, let’s have a good weekend. Support those local farmers, makers, bakers. Be kind, be patient, wear a mask, say thank you. And speaking of thanks- a big thank you to Diana at Office Source here in Gualala for creating the labels we needed to get these items back out on the sales floor. 🌿

A few words from Niko and Evita @wilderferments on buying locally produced goods, some simple etiquette requests for this Saturday’s farmer’s market and a big ray of sunshine filled gratitude for grocery and restaurant workers.🌿 “Now more than ever, we are so grateful to be a part of our vibrant local food scene. Supporting local farmers, bakers + makers before buying goods from elsewhere is such a powerful act that enriches our community and expands our potential. It’s so important for outdoor farmers markets to continue and to thrive during the pandemic and it can be a signal to other communities that what we need might be right under our noses, growing next door and handed to us directly by the hands that made it. Thank you to all the market managers for doing all that you do to make these markets possible!
This Saturday at the @gualalafarmersmarket, we would love to see folks showing respect for others by following the guidelines ~ masks, proper hygiene + spacing. If we are all engaged, patient, respectful and understanding our markets will thrive.
We want to thank the team at Surf Market for their continued support through the crisis. And for that matter, we want to thank all our local grocery stores stocking local goods and providing for the community, to the store workers keeping the shelves stocked, to the restaurants providing delicious take out and adapting rapidly in a rapidly changing environment. We love you guys! And we can’t wait to see your faces once this storm has passed.”

Please share this post to help inform the community of the Health and Safety Guidelines for the Farmer's Market at the Community Center this Saturday.
Gualala Farmers Market
Saturday, May 23
9:30am-12:30pm

Supporting our local farmers and makers is one of the great joys for the Mendonoma community. This year, due to COVID19, we need to remind everyone who plans to attend the Farmers Market of some extra health and safety guidelines that everyone MUST abide by while attending the Gualala Farmers Market. If you are interested in volunteering, Donna Bishop (pictured 😊) could use your help. Please contact her directly at 707-884-3276.

Health and Safety Guidelines:

DO NOT enter the Farmers Market if you are experiencing any symptoms of COIVD19: fever, cough or shortness of breath.

WEAR A MASK. Even though the Farmers Market is held outdoors, this is a requirement for entry.
DO NOT HANDLE ITEMS that you don't intend to buy. Even if you have gloves on, shop with your eyes, not your hands.

HONOR THE 6 FOOT SOCIAL DISTANCING RULE. Please respect the space around you. Be mindful of proximity to vendors and other community members.

SHOP AS INDIVIDUALS. With a limited amount of space available, shopping as groups, couples or families is not advised.
WASH/SANITIZE your hands before attending the Farmers Market.

MAKE SELECTIONS QUICKLY to allow for others to make purchases without congesting the lines.
Be Kind. Be Patient. Be gentle. Say Thank You.
