Guitar Mac and the Blues Express — Lenny Freeman, bass; Sal Derenzi, rhythm guitar; Guitar Mac, guitar and vocals; and Neal Hampton, drums — bring their Delta-style blues to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday, from 5 to 8 p.m. The celebration is held in conjunction with the Davis Farmers Market in Central Park, Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis.

Born in Cotton Plant, Ark., Mac learned to play Delta-style guitar at a young age. Since moving to the South Bay Area in 1968 and settling in Sacramento in 1989, he’s been a big part of the Northern California blues scene.

The Farmers Market is full of seasonal produce, including asparagus, snap peas, bokchoy, greens, lettuces, herbs, carrots and potatoes plus local free-range eggs, honey, olive oil, jams, dried fruit, nuts, flowers and garden starts. Craft booths are at the north end of the market.

Picnic in the Park’s international food fair offers picnickers a wide array of dinner specialties to tantalize worldly palates. Caffé Italia will bring its mobile pizza oven to make “pizzas with a purpose” (benefiting the Davis Farm to School Connection), with toppings from local farmers. Other food vendors are The Buckhorn, Ciocolat, Davis Creamery, Fat Face, The Hotdogger, Monticello Bistro, Mustard Seed, Santa Fe Trading Co. and Steve’s Pizza.

Soroptimist International of Davis hosts the beer and wine booth, with proceeds benefiting the service club’s local charities.

Children’s entertainment includes the bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, Bouncing Bungalows, face-painting, pony rides and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
