Get ready for a pig-out at Davis Farmers Market's Pig Day

The Davis Farmers Market is a landmark destination for all of the Sacramento region, offering an impressive array of top-of-the-line local agriculture.

This Saturday, it will host the 21st annual Pig Day, celebrating all things pork. Bring your appetites for individually priced items from vendors ($3.50 to $12), including breakfast (pancakes and bacon), breakfast sandwiches (with pulled pork or bacon), pigs in a blanket, barbecued ribs, pizza, piggie-shaped cookies and bread, corn dogs and hot dogs, watermelon-chocolate chip ice cream and more.

Farmers market partner Sutter Davis Hospital will host a cooking-demonstration station, with free samplings of Bledsoe pork stir-fry, and free menu cards.

Special events are planned for children, including family photo opportunities with the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, an appearance by "Ms. Piggie," a piglet petting zoo, and arts and crafts.

"After 21 years, Pig Day is part of the Davis culture," said farmers market manager Randii MacNear. "It's the only event of its kind in California, celebrating the pig's rightful place as one of mankind's most intelligent and useful domesticated animals."

Pig Day at the Davis Farmers Market will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday in Central Park at Fourth and C streets. More information: (530) 756-1695,
