The Davis Farmers Market will celebrate the harvest season and thank its vendors and shoppers at the Fall Festival from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in Central Park, Fourth and C streets.

The Halloween-themed festival features activities and harvest specialties for the whole family.

Members of Soroptimist International of Davis return to host the pumpkin patch — with games and activities for kids, along with free pumpkins — and the Peter Franklin Band will perform crowd-pleasing Americana music.

The children’s area will feature hands-on crafts and science activities, including chemistry activities and demonstrations by the UC Davis Chemistry Club and craft activities offered by area 4-H clubs.

Sutter Davis Hospital hosts a children’s costume parade beginning at 11 a.m. at the oak tree deck.

Fall Festival animals include piglets from Woodland farmer Jim Neilson’s farm, birds of prey from the California Raptor Center and farm animals from California Education through Animals. CETA also will host pony rides.

Dilly Dally the Clown will show off her balloon wizardry, and Aaron Crane — a juggler and “object manipulation engineer” — will demonstrate amazing feats with food and flatware.

Supporters of the Central Park Gardens will unveil their new sundial sculpture in the Central Park meadow and host a seed-planting activity for kids, while also offering eco-friendly gardening information.

All visitors to the gardens along B Street will receive free flower seeds to plant now for spring blooming.

The food faire will feature Caffé Italia’s farm-fresh pizzas, a fundraiser for the Davis Farm to School Connection, plus pastrami sliders made from beef from Bledsoe Meats; market bakeries’ fresh pie by the slice with whipped cream; Davis Creamery’s fall festival ice cream (in pumpkin, honey almond and walnut flavors); and Davis restaurateurs Fat Face and Monticello’s seasonal delights.

Montoya’s Tamales will sell tamales and burritos, Kathmandu Kitchen will offer Indian foods, and Gold Rush Kettle Pop will sell fresh-popped kettle corn. The Davis Food Co-op will present a cooking demonstration using local fall ingredients.

“Fall Festival celebrates local food, local farms and the harvest season,” says market manager Randii MacNear. “It’s also our way of thanking customers for their patronage throughout the year.

“We invite everyone to come in costume for fun, fabulous local food, and the chance to celebrate the harvest with family and friends.”
