Thursday’s Sutter Davis Hospital Farmers Market — open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the hospital’s main entrance — will host 10 farmers, plus two prepared food vendors. The hospital is at 2000 Sutter Place in West Davis.
Market shoppers will find blackberries and jam from Bridgeway Farms; apricots, peaches, nectarines and plums from Neufeld Farms; apricots, peaches, plums and pluots from Mt. Moriah Farms; strawberries from Williamson Farms; avocados from Shoup Farms; honey from Silveyville Farm; olive oil from Taber Ranch; almonds and almond butter from Robben Ranch; tomatoes, corn, potatoes, carrots, beets, onions and garlic from Toledo Farms; and a wide variety of vegetables from Vue Farms.
Prepared food vendors are 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 hospital market on Thursdays as well as at Davis Farmers Market on Saturdays (8 a.m. to 1 p.m.) and Wednesdays (4:30 to 8:30 p.m.).
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.”
