Slow Food in Sonoma County awards the Snail of Approval to local restaurants, farms/ranches and producers who are making a significant contribution to improving the food system. By celebrating these model providers, Slow Food in Sonoma County highlights the importance of the Slow Food philosophy of good, clean and fair food for all people. Slow Food in Sonoma County is a partnership of two local chapters, Russian River and Sonoma County North.
Good food is fundamental: food must taste good and be good for us, local and seasonal are priorities.
Clean food is produced in a manner that does not harm the environment, animal welfare, or our health.
Fair food means ensuring accessible prices for consumers, as well as fair conditions and pay for small-scale producers.
(not all locations are on the map as some vary in their locations or are not open to the public)
