Making your gift list and checking it twice? Pay a visit to the Davis Farmers Market on Saturdays this month — you’ll find everything you need that’s local, farm-fresh and seasonal for your holiday meals and parties, plus gift ideas for everyone on your list.

The market runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Central Park, Fourth and C streets. Holiday music is planned all month.

Shoppers who purchase at least three items from the market — including local produce, cheese, jams and olive oils — may bring them to Gift Basket Central at the market booth and have them wrapped for free in a complimentary gift basket.

“Add a signed copy of ‘The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook’ (Mirabelle Press, $24.95), and you’ll have the perfect gift for any home cook or food lover on your list,” says Randii MacNear, market manager. “Or, put together a basket for your favorite holiday party hostess.”

At the north end of the market, shoppers will find crafters offering a variety of hand-made items, including dolls, photography, beeswax candles, lapidary arts, holiday wreaths, fresh lavender and cedar sachets, pottery, metal and wood work, basketry, paintings and jewelry.

Davis Farmers Market Gift certificates and shopping baskets are available at the market booth at the south end of the pavilion.

Holiday music Saturday will feature the Grace Valley Carolers, Piccola, Richter Scale, Davis Holiday Band, Avalanche, Acacia Fellowship, Davis Suzuki Strings and Music Box.

On Dec. 15, music will be presented by No Strings Attached (Holmes Junior High School’s ninth-grade quartet), the Peter Franklin Band and harpist Aryeh.

On Dec. 22, Susanna Holland, Crazy Eights, Blue Confluence and Grace Valley Carolers will be featured.
