Select Local Merchants

Family-owned Husick's offers gourmet foodstuffs and gift baskets, wines, and periodic dinners in a charming country store. With a seat at a Winemaker's Dinner, you'll join up to 20 guests for a sumptuous, seasonal meal in the heart of the country, complete with an introduction to some regional wines and a chance to play footsy with a devilishly handsome Tule elk. The menu abounds with fresh, local ingredients, starting with crab cakes dressed in red-pepper aioli sauce ($11) and a salad of field greens, delta pears, Cypress Grove chevre and pear vinaigrette ($13). Roasted sage and butternut squash soup comes drizzled with truffle oil ($11) and tastes like autumn in a bowl, without the unpleasantness of dry leaf-bits between your teeth. For the main course, feast on braised short ribs in pinot noir sauce, roasted rosemary-garlic fingerling potatoes, french-cut green beans with prosciutto and mushrooms ($37) and a glass of Spoto cabernet ($21). Crème brûlée served with fresh berries and mint in chocolate cups ($14) provides an elegant companion to Bogle port ($8).

To call The Body Shop a mere skin and body care store is to miss half of what makes it special. Late founder Dame Anita Roddick was a pioneer for ethical business practices; upon opening her first store in Brighton, England, in 1976, she developed company values such as "Defend Human Rights" and "Protect The Planet." She somehow balanced principles and profit, partnering in global campaigns with UNICEF, Greenpeace, Amnesty International, and the United Nations, all while ultimately expanding her brand into 2,500 locations in over 60 international markets. After her death in 2007, then-British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, ?She campaigned for green issues for many years before it became fashionable to do so and inspired millions to the cause by bringing sustainable products to a mass market. . . . She was an inspiration.? Indeed, the Body Shop exhibits an eco-friendliness and social consciousness that's hard to come by in a company of its size. Its products have been fair-trade since 1987, and its Against Animal Testing movement led to an EU-wide ban of animal testing of cosmetics. The products are made from ingredients harvested from around the world: shea butter from Ghana goes into body scrubs and butters, and Indian artisans craft wooden massagers and tote bags that are screenprinted by hand. But all that isn't to say the company's production practices overshadow its final products. Skincare treatments such as the brand?s iconic body butters, facial products, and gift collections often appear in Allure, Marie Claire, Lucky, Seventeen and other national publications.

Ground Zero Clothing and Boardshop?s adroit staff has been equipping athletes with apparel and gear for skateboarding, snowboarding, and wakeboarding since 1997. Harnessing the style and proven functionality of such top-tier brands as TOMS, Volcom, Nike SB, and Burton, they swathe bodies from head to toe in shoes, jeans, and T-shirts. Their collection of Spy and Electric sunglasses protects peepers from whipping winds, and their skateboard decks by Real and Creature help guests skim across surfaces with the speed of an over-caffeinated Zamboni operator. Though their selection of boards and accessories rotates frequently, they typically have skimboards, wakeboards, and snowboards in stock to help their guests defy gravity in style. Additionally, skilled staff members recalibrate scuffed boards or grant patrons a chance to test pilot new ways to commute to work with their equipment repair and rental services.

Hosted by the nonprofit art-and-education center La Raza Galería Posada, Jammin' in the Park 2 unites Sacramentoans for a day of culture and lively Chicano rhythms.

The word asha translates to "alive and well"—a phrase that fits Asha Yoga's mission to provide the community with a place to cultivate a healthy, well-rounded yoga practice. Founder Cori Martinez expounds on this vision in a virtual orientation, explaining that although the studio does not promulgate a particular style of yoga, it does adhere to basic yogic principles: the integration of breath and movement, the practice of meditation, and the balance of effort and ease. The studio incorporates these facets into classes for students of all ability levels. "We know that each person has different needs and we support that," Martinez explains. Seven days a week, a dozen teachers, including Martinez, guide students through poses that lengthen and strengthen muscles. They also offer a teacher-training program for aspiring instructors or students who want to deepen their practice. Beyond classroom hours, a handful of teachers maintain blogs that break down common myths about yoga. One recent entry shed light on the misconception that yoga is for flexible people, while another busted the myth that yoga is a dairy product made of fermented milk.
