Some of the most beautiful properties in Marin can be found in Kentfield, a quiet community of spacious, older homes sited on large, lushly landscaped parcels. The nerve center of this small, residential community is perhaps Woodlands Market, a unique gourmet grocery store, bakery, wine bar, and cafe. For more than 25 years, Woodlands Market has been the place where Kentfield residents can socialize and shop and the same time.
Kentfield is home to the College of Marin, a two-year community college with a strong local presence. The College of Marin offers adult classes to the public and has a vibrant performing-arts program of theater, vocal, and classical music. The frequent public performances provide residents with access to culture not normally found in a community of less than 7,000 residents.
