Looking for that perfect “shop local” gift? Head to the Davis Farmers Market.
There will be holiday music at Gift Basket Central from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, Dec. 14 and 21, in Central Park at Fourth and C streets.
The market features locally grown and produced foods and more that will please any food lover on your list. Buy three items, take them to Gift Basket Central and market staffers will wrap them for free in a complimentary gift basket.
“You can customize a gift basket that’s perfect for party hostesses and home cooks,” says market manager Randii MacNear. “Or put together ingredients for a themed gift basket, like a Holiday Brunch Basket with local eggs, challah, jams, bacon, coffee and honey.”
A copy of the cook-friendly, spiral-bound edition of “The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook” — $20, including tax — completes any basket.
At the north end of the market, shoppers will find crafters offering a variety of hand-made items including goat’s milk soaps and lotions, dolls, photography, beeswax candles, lapidary arts, holiday wreaths, fresh lavender and cedar sachets, pottery, metal and wood work, basketry, paintings and jewelry.
Farmers Market gift certificates, market shopping baskets, logo aprons, mugs, T-shirts and totes are available at the market booth at the south end of the pavilion. The market accepts debit and credit cards, and there are two ATMs available.
Davis Farmers Market fans also can order logo items online from Ink Monkey Graphics of Davis at http://inkmonkeygraphics.com/product-category/davis-farmers-market for shipping in Davis or beyond.
