Guitar Mac and the Blues Express bring the Delta-style blues of B.B. King and Muddy Waters to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday from 5 p.m. till dark.

Guitar Mac hails from Cotton Plant, Ark., but his music is pure Mississippi Delta Blues. The band has been a regular at the Sacramento Blues Festival and is a Picnic in the Park favorite. The Davis Food Co-op sponsors the music and the market’s community partner, Sutter Davis Hospital, sponsors Picnic in the Park.

The weekly festival in Central Park, Fourth and C streets, features a food fair showcasing local restaurants and caterers. Members of Soroptimist International of Davis pour local beer and wine, raising money for local charities.

The market is packed with organic and conventional spring produce — strawberries, asparagus, snap peas, avocados, greens, lettuces and citrus fruits — plus local cheese, wine, dried fruit and nuts, flowers, plants and garden starts.

Visitors can shop the farmers market, buy dinner or bring a picnic and entertain kids with family fun. Children’s entertainment includes the bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenich’s Acres and balloons by Dilly Dally the Clown.

Check out the music schedule for Picnic in the Park at www.davisfarmersmarket.org/picnic or follow on Facebook for updates.
