Davis Farmers Market
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. In the evenings, enjoy live local music, beer and wine, or a meal from one of our many food stands, made from market ingredients.

At the Market

Welcome to “At the Market,” where I post regularly about produce highlights, vendor stories and market surprises.

June 9: I’m excited to see the Sutter Davis Hospital return for our 10th year! It’s open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Thursday, June 11 to Oct. 29, at the hospital entrance, 2000 Sutter Place. I’ve worked with hospital executives to develop a plan that allows for six to seven vendors, and includes the same precautions we have for our Wednesday and Saturday markets: face coverings, social distancing of vendors, sidewalk markings to space out shoppers, and hand hygiene stations. Sellers wear gloves and masks, and typically select the produce for the shopper.

Certified Farmers Markets are an essential part of the community’s food security. Our Central Park markets remain open Wednesdays from 3-6 and Saturdays from 8-1. We offer many pre-bagged items, and several diversified farms have CSA-like pre-packed boxes. The open-air setting, with products coming directly from the producer, means few people handle it.

We are grateful for the many customers who have commented by email, phone or social media posts, thanking us for keeping the markets open, and for providing a safe marketplace.

– Randii MacNear, Davis Farmers Market executive director
