About Sonoma Plaza, Sonoma
Sonoma Plaza is the at the heart of Sonoma Town and it is the largest plaza in California. Like every town centre, this plaza is surrounded by shops, restaurants and other points of sightseeing situated in town. In the northeast corner of the park is the Bear Flag Monument, a reminder of California’s freedom struggle from Mexico. Right in the middle of the plaza is the Sonoma City Hall where the Valley’s administrative work takes place. The building was constructed in 1908 and the design has four identical facades so that it looks the same from all sides. Many of Sonoma’s cultural festivals and parades begin at the Sonoma Plaza. Visitors often take picnics under the green canopy and the plaza is also the site for weekly farmers’ markets.

Sonoma Plaza, Sonoma Reviews - Write a Review
If you are a local you know how fun this square is. Tuesday night Farmers Market is a blast, more like a festival than a farmers market. So many great businesses here I cannot name them all. Check out Terra Firma Art Gallery, it is always worth taking a stroll thru the gallery to check out the ever changing art collection. Taste some cheese at the Sonoma Cheese Factory, grab a sandwich here and picnic across the street in the park. There is a great little playground in the park that seem to be perennially in the shade, which, is great on a hot summer day. There is a historic adobe mission here and barracks too.
My town Rocks. Sonoma Strong....always Thanks to all of those that helped others in their time of despair and need. We will rebuild, and be better than ever. Blessed Be JD
Great place for lunch. Town square has lots of picnic tables. Get a bottle of wine and some bread and cheese and enjoy!
It's a beautiful town square with many fun events for locals and visitors alike. Plus it's always very clean! Keep up the good work Mr. CleanGreen!
Beautiful, lush area for all the family to visit and relax. With playgrounds and events it makes it an ideal place to escape the heat as it stays cool even when hot in other areas and lots of great eateries around to grab food.
