The Davis Farmers Market has been a downtown staple since 1975 when it was founded by local family farmers looking for a way to sell their produce directly to the public.
In 2009, the Davis Farmers Market was crowned America’s favorite large farmers’ market by the American Farmland Trust and thousands of voters. The win represents the integral role the Davis Farmers Market plays in the community and the avid support of its dedicated
customers and fans during its long history.
In the spring of 2012, the local landmark also was tapped as one of the nation’s top 10 farmers markets by USA Today. The national publication praised the market’s “very social atmosphere (where) shoppers find the bounty of California, with berries, figs, olive oil, chestnuts, asparagus and dozens of other offerings.”
Explore the market stalls twice a week year-round, rain or shine, and you will find fruits, vegetables, nuts, flowers, honey, wine, cheese, crafts and gift baskets.
On Wednesday evenings between March and October, you’ll find all of the above, plus an international food fair and live music at the popular Picnic in the Park. Kids will enjoy Wednesday evenings with balloons, carousel and pony rides, face-painting, bouncing bungalows, craft activities and much more.
