That’s some day at the Farmers Market

From page A4 | February 28, 2014 |

In a blanket, in a story or in the mud, no matter how you like your pig, the Davis Farmers Market has something for you on Saturday.
Pig Day is one of the market’s most popular annual events. Visitors will find baby pigs, people in pig costumes and pig-out eats at the market from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in Central Park, Fourth and C streets in downtown Davis.

“Pig Day is so unique, and after 21 years it’s part of the Davis culture,” market manager Randii MacNear said. “It’s the only event of its kind in California, celebrating the pig’s rightful place as one of man’s most intelligent and useful domesticated animals.”
Visitors can make pigs of themselves with all the tasty goodies. They can start by sampling a pork stir fry made from Bledsoe pork and market vegetables at Sutter Davis Hospital’s live cooking station; recipe cards will be available.

Market food vendors will have for sale piggie pops; smoked, roasted pork ribs and farm-fresh pizzas; breakfast sammies with bacon or pulled pork; and pigs in a blanket and corn dogs.
Davis Creamery will sell watermelon-chocolate chip ice cream and Fat Face will sell its signature ice pops made from market ingredients.

The Yolo County Food Bank also will serve up a free farm breakfast of pancakes, bacon and juice. Donations will be accepted with gratitude, with proceeds benefiting the local community. Sponsors include Sodexo (whose volunteers will do the cooking), Nugget Markets, Grocery Outlet Woodland, the Davis Food Co-op and Davis Bike Club, with volunteers provided by PG&E.

Davis artist Heidi Bekebrede will offer kids a chance to paint their own clay piggy bank for a fee.

The Peter Franklin Band and Regal Beezers will offer crowd-pleasing Americana music.

For more information on the festivities, visit www.davisfarmersmarket.org or call 530-756-1695.
