The Davis Farmers Market throws a party for the community every Wednesday evening throughout the summer in Davis’ Central Park. Picnic in the Park features live music, children’s activities and a food fair, so there’s something for every member of the family.
The market is open 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesdays. Summer season is in full swing with plenty of melons, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, greens, lettuces, avocados, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries, plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb. Crafts are at the north end of the market.
Bring a picnic dinner to enjoy on the lawn, or purchase food from one of many vendors on-site. The International Food Faire offers a wide array of dinner choices, including El Mariachi Taqueria, Raja’s Tandoor, Kathmandu Kitchen, Thai Recipes and East West Gourmet.
Other food vendors include The Buckhorn, Ciocolat, Farmer’s Kitchen, Davis Creamery, Fat Face, The Hotdogger, Monticello Seasonal Cuisine, Original’s Steve’s Pizza, Upper Crust Bakery, Davis Bread & Desserts, OctoberFeast Bakery, Bare Juices and Kettlepop. Davis Soroptimists pour Sudwerk beer and local wine to raise money for local charities.
Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenwich Acres and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
