The Wednesday Davis farmers market returns


In another rite of spring, the Davis Farmers Market returns to a two-day-a-week affair this Wednesday, March 11. But first, the market's pig day is scheduled for Saturday - a family-friendly event of live pigs and a lot of food, too. It starts at 8 a.m. and continues until 1 p.m. at Central Park at Fourth and C streets.

Then later this week, there will be the inaugural Wednesday market, which runs from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. There will be musicians and food - tacos, curry, pizza and burgers, as part of the weekly picnic in the park series.

And don't forget the year-round Sacramento farmers market under the freeway, or the Asian one around the corner, that offers even cheaper prices and a small taste of the shoving and pushing considered normal in many Asian countries.
