Being in Yolo County means being in exceptional farmland, and the region’s farmers markets make it easy for you to shop for the freshest produce you can find.
In 2016, the Davis Farmers Market celebrated its 40th anniversary. Open every Saturday morning, year-round, and on Wednesday afternoons, the market is recognized as one of the best in the nation. During daylight-saving time, the Wednesday market expands into a Picnic in the Park event with entertainment, dining, beer and wine.
You’ll find other markets in Davis as well as neighboring Woodland, where producers offer their goods on Main Street in the historic downtown.
