Davis Farmers Market, Among the Nation’s Best


When the weather warms up and summer is in full bloom, one of the most anticipated activities for many is visiting local farmers markets. There is no better place to pick up delicious fruits, veggies, flowers and often times a variety of other specialty products from local vendors.

I’d have to say the most robust farmers market I ever visited was a Saturday afternoon market in New York’s Greenwich Village. Luckily for us in the Sacramento region, there is no need to travel far and wide to find a fun farmers market. In fact, the immensely popular market held year-round in Davis was named one of the top 10 in the nation by USA Today. The highly anticipated “Picnic in the Park” begins annually at the end of March and runs through October. This weekly Wednesday evening event was hailed for its social and family friendly aspect, as well its abundance of fresh goods.

Congratulations to our neighbor on this awesome shout out! In addition to the market in Davis, the Sacramento region hosts a dozen fabulous farmers markets throughout the week. Chances are there is one close to you! Click here for a list of local certified farmers markets. Enjoy!

    I was at Davis Farmer’s Market in August & purchased
    a cute basket. I would like to order more baskets, but I can’t find the name of the vendor & was hoping you could help. They sold DFM t-shirts, aprons & basket w/leather handles. Thank you
