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.

Aug. 1: We’re excited about National Farmers Market Week Aug. 2-8. It highlights the positive impact markets have on communities and the nation’s food system.

Here are some timely facts about our markets:

  • Farmers markets are essential businesses. COVID-19 made it clear that local food systems with short supply chains are resilient and dependable in making food available to their communities.
  • Farmers market organizations are local food heroes. When the pandemic hit, everyone had to scramble to accommodate the changing requirements to keep customers safe. Market operators were some of the first to implement innovative strategies to change their operations around public health protocols.
  • Farmers markets are safe. Emerging research supports conventional wisdom that outdoor marketplaces like farmers markets are as safe or safer than indoor retailers due to air circulation, sunlight, the flexibility to enforce physical distancing by spacing vendors and products, and the innovative strategies we have implemented.

On Thursday, we celebrate our 10-year anniversary of the Sutter Davis Hospital Farmers Market. The market is open 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursdays through Oct. 29.
