Saturday, March 6, 2010 is Pig Day at the Davis Farmers’ Market. It’s an annual celebration that celebrates pigs, food and local agriculture that you won’t want to miss.
Start your morning off with a genuine farm breakfast of pancakes, bacon, eggs and juice offered by The Yolo County Food Bank with proceeds benefiting the local community.
For the kids there will be cute baby pigs and other farm animals to pet and lots of activities, like making pig ears, pigtails, pig faces and pig puppets, at booths sponsored by the Davis Parent Nursery School and Davis Community Church Preschool. There’ll also be pony rides and tightrope walking. And if all that activity wears you out, head for the big deck under the oak tree in the center of the market. It’s a good spot to sit down, relax. There you can listen to musicians and maybe even watch some jugglers.
The event hours are 9 to 1, rain or shine. Farmers’ Market hours are 8 – 1. The market is located in Downtown Davis, at Central Park, 4th and C Streets. For directions click here.
While your there you’ll want to pick up some fresh local produce . Here’s what’s in season for March.
