Rheem Valley Shopping Center, Moraga
Great news for English riders as Dover Saddlery is opening their first northern California store in Rheem Valley Shopping Center in Moraga this Friday. I didn’t realize Moraga was a hotspot for English riding but since Dover Saddlery has a giant mail order operation they knew that there is large demand within 20 miles of Moraga.
Tuesday Morning used to be at this location, I took a look inside and it’s gigantic. They also carry horse-themed clothes so even if you’re not looking for a new English saddle, this is a must see!
From their website:
Founded in 1975 by US Equestrian Team Members, Dover Saddlery is the leading purveyor of quality English horse tack, horse supplies and riding apparel for horse and rider at any level of competition. The stores are stocked with all the products you want and a knowledgeable staff is there to help the customers find exactly what they need. So come on in and say “Hi” to the friendly faces at your Dover Saddlery Retail Store.
Moraga Farmers Market
A new food truck called Lovin’ from the Oven, “featuring fresh baked quiches, croissants, sticky buns and more” recently started selling their goods at the Moraga farmers market. From the menu below they also sell pies.
From the Moraga School District:
A former student of Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School has filed a claim against the Moraga School District, seeking damages for sexual abuse by former teacher Dan Witters in the early 1990s.
This is the fifth claim related to sexual abuse of Joaquin Moraga Intermediate School students in the early and mid-1990s. An insurance provider for the district settled four related lawsuits in 2013 and 2014.
Government tort claims such as this typically are a precursor to the filing of a lawsuit. The claim has been turned over to an insurance company that provided coverage during this period, and to an insurance JPA of which the district is a member. These entities bear primary responsibility for and control over the legal response. The district cannot comment publicly on this or any matter of pending litigation.
The board and leadership of today’s Moraga School District are committed to vigilantly protecting the children entrusted to our care, and we have taken important steps to ensure our schools are safe places where our community’s children receive an excellent education. Since 2013, we have trained every employee annually on his or her duties as a mandated reporter, and we have partnered with neighboring districts and community organizations to improve student safety throughout the region. We recognize that we have no greater responsibility than the care and protection of our students.

Moraga Produce opened a few years ago in the Rheem Valley Shopping Center in Moraga but it looks like they are mostly closed. According to the Yelp reviews ownership has changed and it’s been closed whenever I dropped by this week. Peering inside (see photo below) it looks like most of the produce is gone. Yet I don’t see any official sign they’re closed and the carts are still outside. Anyone know what’s going on?
