Gift cards — redeemable for a signed copy of “The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook” (Mirabelle Press, $24.95) — will be on sale Saturday at the market shed at Third and C streets downtown.

“When it makes its debut in March, ‘The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook’ is going to rate a top spot on bookshelves of home cooks and farmers market lovers everywhere,” says Randii MacNear, Davis Farmers Market manager.

The gift cards also are available at both UC Davis Bookstores, in the Memorial Union on campus and downtown at 630 Second St.; Davis Ace Hardware, 240 G St.; The Avid Reader, 617 Second St.; and RootStock gift shop, 22 Main St. in Winters.

Get a sneak peek at the cookbook at www.davisfarmersmarketcookbook.com.

When the cookbook is published in March, it will celebrate one of California’s earliest and most renowned markets and the food produced by California’s small farms. The book is being written by Georgeanne Brennan, an award-winning cookbook author and Winters resident, and Ann Evans, former Davis mayor, food activist and UCD grad.

In it, the authors sing the praises of the Davis Farmers Market as well as the local food showcased there every week, year-round.

Brennan and Evans had the idea to write the cookbook about three years ago.

“It was one of those projects that was simmering on a back burner,” Brennan says. “Ann and I saw all these farmers market cookbooks coming out. Of all the farmers markets out there, Davis Farmers Market deserves to have a really good cookbook.”

“The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook” will document the story of a pioneering farmers market — established in 1976 — and the local food movement that has swept the nation.

The cookbook will have recipes for all kinds of cooks, from beginner to advanced.

“This book will help cooks feel the joy of working with farm-fresh, local food and what it means to shop the market and cook food to share,” Evans says. “Our cookbook will deepen their relationship with food by inspiring them.”

MacNear says the market plans to use the cookbook as a platform for events throughout 2012, including book launch events; Cookbook Day at the Market with cookbook signings at the start of each season; and monthly cooking demonstrations featuring recipes from the cookbook.
