Spicy Brazilian, Latin and world rhythms will fill Central Park on Wednesday evening as YoloMambo performs from 5 to 8 p.m. at Picnic in the Park. The park is at Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis.

YoloMambo delivers original world music plus the songs of Norah Jones, Stevie Wonder, Eva Cassidy, Sting, Cesaria Evora, Marta Gomez, Susanna Baca and the Buena Vista Social Club. Vocalist Catherine LeBlanc sings in six languages — English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Gaelic, Maori — and the entire quartet sings back-up vocals.

The Davis Farmers Market will be open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. and is full of seasonal produce, including melons, tomatoes, corn, blackberries, strawberries, peaches, nectarines, apples, grapes, plums, avocados, string beans, bok choy, greens, lettuces, herbs, carrots and potatoes plus local free-range eggs, cheese, honey, olive oil, jams, dried fruit, nuts, wine and flowers.

Picnic in the Park’s international food fair offers picnickers a wide array of dinner specialties to tantalize worldly palates. Caffé Italia presents “Pizza with a Purpose” to benefit the Davis Farm to School Connection, with toppings sourced from local farmers.

Other food vendors are The Buckhorn, Ciocolat, Davis Creamery, El Mariachi, Fat Face, The Hotdogger, Kathmandu Kitchen, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, Mustard Seed, Raja Indian Cuisine, Santa Fe Trading Co., Steve’s Pizza and Thai Recipes.

Members of Soroptimist International of Davis pour beer and wine to benefit local charitable projects.

Children can entertainment themselves on the bicycle-powered carousel and Rocknasium’s climbing structure, in bounce houses or with face-painting and balloon maker Dilly Dally the Clown.

For more information, call (530) 756-1695 or visit www.davisfarmersmarket.org.
