Glass Beach access through November 2014 and Coastal Trail construction

Public access to Glass Beach will be restricted from August 18, 2014 until November 30, 2014.  The primary access is closed due to construction, but limited access is available on weekends only along a flagged alternate trail.  Follow signs from the main Glass Beach access.  The City of Fort Bragg is building a 93-acre park on a piece of the vacant industrial parcel south of Glass Beach, thereby opening up 3.5 miles of Fort Bragg coastline for walking. Key improvements include: 4.5 miles of new trails connecting Noyo Bridge with Pudding Creek Trestle; 2 new parking lots with welcome plazas and bathrooms. Other beaches to check out during the closure: Hare Creek Beach, Pudding Creek Beach, and most of MacKerricher SP. For more info about Glass Beach, see this update on the beach closure and the new park from the City of Fort Bragg.

Fans of the Fort Bragg Certified Farmers Market, held on Franklin Street between Laurel and Pine in historic downtown Fort Bragg usually feel a wistful sense of the passing seasons, as the last market day of the year approaches at the end of October.  Not so this year, as the market has secured an indoor location; in the old gym behind City Hall.  The Fort Bragg market has traditionally been a seasonal one, open the first Wednesday in May through the last Wednesday in October.  Locals and visitors alike anxiously await the spring opening and a return to the beautiful and fresh local produce.  The market will move to the new location on Wednesday, November 5, 2014, and will be held during the usual hours of 3:00P through 6:00P.

Support your local food producers and come to the new winter market at City Hall on Laurel Street just down from Franklin.  Our local farmers and producers will thank you, and so will your taste buds!  For more information, click HERE.
