The Plainfield Pickers will bring their crowd-pleasing Western swing and bluegrass to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday, Aug. 6, in Central Park. This local band — Scott Stone (guitar and vocals), Jim Hilliard (bass and background vocals), Jim Jelks (drums), Naomi Rogers-Hefley (fiddle) and Harold Crawford (banjo and guitar) — has been together since 1997 and its high energy music makes them a Picnic in the Park favorite. Music starts at 5 p.m.

Davis Food Co-op sponsors the music; Sutter Davis Hospital, sponsors Picnic in the Park.

The Market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 pm. Bring a picnic or grab dinner at more than a dozen prepared food booths, including, The Hotdogger, Bare Juices, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, Davis Food Co-op, Montoya’s Tamales, Our House, Village Bakery, The Buckhorn, Raja’s Tandoor, Kathmandu Kitchen, Thai Recipes, East West Gourmet, Sugar Daddies, Fat Face, Upper Crust Bakery, Davis Bread & Desserts, and Kettlepop. Davis Soroptimists offer local beer and wine, raising money for local charities.

The Market is packed with organic and conventional summer produce—blackberries, strawberries, melons, grapes, avocados, greens, lettuces, corn, summer squashes and beans, potatoes, onions, garlic, bok choy — plus local cheese, wine, dried fruit and nuts, blackberry jams, crisps and pies, plus other baked goods, flowers, plants and garden starts. Visitors can shop the farmers market, buy dinner or bring a picnic, and entertain kids with Central Park’s new ag-themed playground and bicycle-powered carousel, the Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bouncing bungalows, face-painting, pony rides by Greenich’s Acres, and balloon genius, Dilly Dally the Clown.
