Creative Mill Valley in the News

Mill Valley, our charming village where Poet and/the Bench headquarters are located, has been featured as a travel destination in quite a few publications recently. We want to share a few notables in case you're visiting Mill Valley, Larkspur, Tiburon... or looking to explore what others have written about our beautifully creative community! Read on:

Writer Maria Shollanbarger writes, "Once the home of midcentury radicalism, this quiet California enclave has a brand-new buzz." Learn about the artists, art galleries, restaurants and hotels the author features and lean in to the legacy of Marin and our very own, Mill Valley.

Standing on Mount Tamalpais I am in the rhythms of the world. Everything seems right as it is. I am in harmony with the stars, for the better or the worst. 
We have enjoyed reading Christina Mueller's articles about Mill Valley as a Special to SFGate and for Marin Magazine to name a few. In this article she captures the iconic features of Mill Valley from its natural geography to its arts, restaurants, bakeries and shopping scene.

The arts and culture and place-making of Marin are full of spirit of old and new. We at Poet and/the Bench in Mill Valley are honored to continue the artist colony vision from the 1940’s of Edna Foster at the complex on Throckmorton and El Paseo lane. Visit us at 11 Throckmorton Avenue and if you'd like a momento of Northern California, check out our Day Tripping Map and some of our fave places! This is a beautifully letter pressed map and if you come by our shop IRL, we'll gift a small digitally printed version with more of our destination recommendations on the backside. ;)
