The Sutter Davis Hospital Farmers Market will reopen Thursday, May 16, and will continue from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursdays through Aug. 29. The market is held at the hospital’s entrance at 2000 Sutter Place in West Davis.

Opening-day festivities include cooking demonstrations and tastings, face time with Dinger and Sacramento River Cats players (bring your cameras), giveaways, plus a market filled with farm-fresh produce, local honey, baked goods, flowers, plants and garden starts.

“This is the third year for the hospital’s farmers market and we have nine sellers confirmed for opening day,” says Randii MacNear, executive director of the Davis Farmers Market and manager of the hospital market. “We’ve added a new vendor, Pasture 42 in Guinda, that will offer farm-fresh eggs and olive oil.”

Market shoppers also will find cherries, apricots, peaches, and nectarines from Neufeld Farms in Kingsburg; blueberries from Neilson’s Berries in Dunnigan; strawberries from Sae Lee Farms; carrots, potatoes, beets, onions, garlic, cherries and other produce from Toledo Farms in Lodi; assorted vegetables from Chavez Farms in Esparto; local honey and honey sauces from Henry’s Bullfrog Bees; plus garden starts and potted plants, large and small, from Boucher Plants in Suisun City.

Upper Crust Bakery of Davis will offer a wide variety of breads and baked goods.

“Sutter Davis Hospital Farmers Market will offer lots of heart-healthy super foods from opening day throughout the season,” MacNear said.

The hospital’s market accepts EBT cards, WIC and senior coupons. Shoppers with no cash in hand also can purchase market scrip using debit or credit cards.

In addition to the market at the hospital, the Davis Farmers Market operates and manages three other farmers markets: Davis Farmers Market on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Wednesdays from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Central Park, and the UC Davis Farmers Market at the Silo patio on Wednesdays from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. during spring and fall quarters.
