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.

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.
