Although named the Rosheimer Building after the original owner, perhaps this Sonoma County landmark should also be referred to as the Sessi Building after the current owner Martin Sessi and his family, whose devotion to historic restoration gave the 146-year old building a new life.
Long-time Penngrove residents Martin Sessi and his late wife Kelly built over thirty residences and revitalized historic Penngrove with their vision for a viable family-friendly downtown area featuring local businesses. Sessi is also a local hero, having saved an 11-year-old girl trapped in a runaway horse-drawn carriage.
In 2015, a fast-moving fire nearly gutted the Rosheimer Building, long considered the “heart and soul” of Penngrove having served as the town’s railroad station, general store, post office, and hardware store. Sessi painstakingly restored the building with a vision to provide a community market for the town’s 2,500 residents.
Sessi’s vision was brought to life by a group of local culinary experts, Rebecca and Evan McDowell and Shaina and Joe Ferraro, who are the owners of the new Penngrove Market. With a passion for local products and seasonal produce, the team provides the Penngrove community and tourists with locally sourced food, home goods, and gifts created by small farmers and artisans.
