Thursday’s Sutter Davis Hospital Farmers Market — open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the hospital’s main entrance, 2000 Sutter Place — will host 11 farmers, plus two prepared food vendors.

Market shoppers will find fresh, local eggs from Isolde Farms in Esparto; cheeses from Winters Cheese Company; almonds, flavored almonds and almond butter from the Nut House in Arbuckle; watermelon and tomatoes from Pacific Star Gardens in Woodland; Asian pears, apples, figs, fresh prunes, dried vegetables, and fresh and dried herbs from Full Circle Farm in Davis; apricots, peaches, nectarines and plums from Neufeld Farms in Petaluma; strawberries and raspberries from Mehl Farms in Watsonville; honey from Silveyville Farm in Dixon; tomatoes, corn, peppers, potatoes, carrots, beets, onions and garlic from Toledo Farms in Lodi; and flowers and a wide variety of vegetables from Vue Farms in Sacramento.

Prepared foods will be available from Upper Crust Bakery of Davis and East West Gourmet Afghan Foods of Concord.

Shoppers can use their debit or credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express) to purchase market dollars, which can be used at the Sutter market on Thursdays as well as at Davis Farmers Market from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays. The Davis market takes place in Central Park, Third and C streets downtown.

Both farmers markets also accept EBT cards and issue market scrip. The market also accepts WIC farmers market nutrition coupons for WIC mothers and seniors.

The Sutter Davis Hospital Farmers Market is the result of a partnership between the Davis Farmers Market and Sutter Davis Hospital that began in January 2010 to promote healthy eating under the slogan, “Good health begins with farm-fresh food.”
