80 North: Davis, Davis Farmers Market

updated 11-16-16

Davis Farmers Market  3rd/C sts., in Central Park, (530) 756-1695.  Sat 10am-1pm & W 2-6pm.  Founded by four U.C. Davis students in 1976, this is the state’s first certified farmers’ market.  The extravaganza overflows an open-air area covered with a high awning (it is the only farmers market in California with its own covered pavilion).  In addition to fresh produce and flowers, it features prepared food and related crafts.  Take time for a snack or lunch of tamales, hot dogs, or Indian fare and “naanwiches.”  I made an inexpensive lunch out of two samosas with a delicious cilantro-coconut green sauce from Kathmandu Kitchen, and sat down for a while to enjoy it at a picnic table sheltered by mature trees.  Nice handmade wicker shopping baskets are for sale at a good price at the market’s kiosk, which also sells popular logo items.
