Davis Farmers Market: Picnic in the Park
August 5 @ 4:30 am - 8:10 am
Year-round at Central Park in downtown Davis, thousands gather each week to shop for what is grown, raised, and made locally at our markets. We are dedicated to bringing farmers right to your table, so we stay open rain or shine.
Walk rows of stalls lined with an array of fruits and vegetables, including certified organic produce, choice meats, chicken, seafood, wine, local eggs and honey. Choose from a variety of fresh-baked goods, plants, flowers and gifts.
At Picnic in the Park, visitors can shop the farmers market, buy dinner at the food fair, visit Soroptimist International of Davis’ beer and wine garden, and entertain youngsters. Children’s entertainment includes the bicycle-powered carousel, two playgrounds, bounce houses, face painting, a petting farm, and balloon creations by Dilly Dally the Clown. Davis Enterprise readers have repeatedly voted the market as the best place in Yolo County to take an out-of-towner, and the best community event.
