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. Enjoy a picnic 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.

What comes to mind when you think of farmers markets? Seasonal produce, colorful flowers, freshly baked bread, music? While the Davis Farmers Market has a positive effect on your Saturday morning or Wednesday afternoon, it also makes a direct impact on our broader community and its food system.

Farmers markets’ role in building healthy communities and prosperity for farmers and small businesses has made the USDA proclaim the first week of August as Farmers Market Week. For the last 25 years, we’ve honored the work being done to connect farmers and society, and to create a sustainable food system.

This year, the celebration is Aug. 4-10. As one of the pioneers of farmers markets since in 1976, the Davis Farmers Market helped lead the way in what is now a global celebration.

The Davis Farmers Market is a great place for farmers to grow, and community members to go. We educate the public and schoolchildren about nutrition, sustainable agriculture, and the local economic value of buying food and products directly from the producer.

And since 2000, our Davis Farm to School program has supported the Davis Joint Unified School District, providing farm- and garden-based education, increasing farm-fresh foods in school meals, and reducing solid waste through recycling and composting.

No matter what week it is, I’m in awe of our organization, our sellers and our amazing community. Happy Farmers Market Week.​

– Randii MacNear, Davis Farmers Market executive director
