We're hosting our first Remodelista & Gardenista Market of the year this Saturday, May 9—the day before Mother's Day—at the Marin Country Mart in Larkspur Landing, California, just 30 minutes from San Francisco.  More than 40 local designers and creators will be selling their wares, and we've been doing some advance shopping. Here are our picks for Father's Day (June 21) and graduation gifts. Spouses and children: For Mother's Day present ideas from the market, see our Gift Guide . Go to our Markets page for more details, and scroll below for a list of vendors. We hope to see you on Saturday!  Father's Day Gifts Above: For the philosopher, reader, or aesthete, consider Wabi-Sabi: Further Thoughts by Leonard Koren from Imperfect Publishing  out of Point Reyes, California. (Learn about Koren's cult-status books in Required Reading .) Above: For the dad who deserves something big this year, The Guideboat  is an exact replica of a rare 1892 design. Not a canoe, the guideboat is rowed rather than paddled; it seats up to three; $4,850 from Guideboat Co. in Mill Valley, California. Above: From LA's Scout Regalia, the  SR Birdhouse Kit  is a ready-to-assemble California craftsman-style birdhouse, a perfect project for kids and dads to do together. The Birdhouse is being offered at a market-only special of $40 (down from $55).  Above: Chairtastic will have a variety of Reclaimed Chairs  at the market, plus their own designs, such as this  Sunset Safari Chair .  Above:  Bar Au Chocolat makes single-origin bars in Manhattan Beach, California (from beans sourced in Madagascar, Brazil, Mexico, and beyond). The company's eight varieties of  Tasting Bars  are $12 each. Graduation Gifts Above: The Roll Top  backpack from Flint  is made by hand in San Francisco of lightweight American canvas. It has a laptop sleeve and a side holder for a water bottle; $325.  Above:  Vintage Kantha  throws from  Elsie Green  are stitched from cotton saris, no two alike; $129 each. Above: The  Teddy Hook  by SF furniture and accessories designer  Alice Tacheny  is a combination maple peg and leather strap for scarves and other accessories; $34.  Above: Big Sur Pillows  from  Haute Bohemian Groupe  are made of yarn that's hand-spun and knit in the Napa Valley. Available in camel, ivory, heather gray, and heather charcoal, they're $250 each.  Above:  Little Apple Granola , a venture with a mission to preserve apple orchards in Sonoma County, will be selling bags of  Apple Cider Toffee —organic toasted almonds, dried pink apples, TCHO chocolate, and apple cider syrup—for $18.95.  Here's a list of the vendors who will be at the Remodelista & Gardenista Market  this Saturday, May 9.  Alice Tacheny Homestead Apothecary Pansy Bar Au Chocolat Huddleson Petel Design Block Shop Imperfect Publishing Pope Valley Pottery Chairtastic In Fiore Rough Linen Coyuchi Julia Turner Sarah Kersten Dagmar Daley Kathleen Whitaker Scout Regalia De Jong & Co Leaves and Flowers Silvia Song Elsie Green Len Carella Ceramics Studiopatro Erica Tanov Les Petits Carreaux Summer Sequoia Flint Lila B The Floracultural Society Glassybaby Little Apple Granola The Petaler Guideboat Company Luke Bartels Thistle 10-5 Haute Bohemian Groupe Maria Schoettler True Nature Botanicals Heliotrope SF Million and Clark TW Workshop More Stories from Remodelista A Grand Residence Reimagined in Berlin Design Sleuth: Knitted Wool Pendant Lights Switched On: Classic Light Switches
