The market is open from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. and features fall produce — apples, pears, grapes, pomegranates, persimmons, potatoes, onions, squash and more — plus local eggs, honey, cheeses and wine.

The international food fair offers picnickers a wide array of dinner specialties to tantalize worldly palates. Members of Soroptimist International of Davis will pour beer and wine to benefit local charities.
