Holiday music makes the market sing

By From page A7 | December 16, 2011

Santa is definitely coming to town at the Davis Farmers Market, where shoppers will enjoy a potpourri of holiday tunes as they browse the market stalls.

The market runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Central Park, Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis.

Musicians to be featured Saturday are Urban Sherpas, Holiday Trumpet Duo, Crazy Eights, The Souterrain, the Davis Chorale, Scott Barnhill, Music Box and The Christmas Band.

At the morning market on Christmas Eve, music will be provided by Fifteen Strings, Jazzy Horns, violinist Kate Saylor, Grace Valley Carolers, Valley Brass, Eclectic Garden and the Peter Franklin Band.

New products at the market include fresh chestnuts, mandarins, smoke salmon, crab, holiday candy, candied nuts and giant and petite poinsettias. Many sellers are offering holiday gift packs for the holidays.

Shoppers who buy three gift items from the market can have them wrapped for free in a complimentary gift basket at the north end of the pavilion near the oak tree deck.

In addition, gift cards redeemable for a signed copy of “The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook” (Mirabelle Press, $24.95) are available at the market booth at the south end of the pavilion, along with market logo wear.

Crafters will be at the north end of the market, selling hand-knit scarves, dolls, photography, beeswax candles, lapidary arts, holiday wreaths, fresh lavender and cedar sachets, pottery, metal and wood work, basketry, paintings and jewelry.
