The high season for downtown farmers markets has arrived. Along with the year-round market under the freeway each Sunday at 6th and X streets, five more downtown farmers markets will run from May until fall.
A farmers market runs each Wednesday starting today at Cesar Chavez Plaza (10th and J streets, Sacramento) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This market will run weekly through Oct. 30.
Two more downtown farmers markets kick off Thursday: Capitol Mall (6th and Capitol, Sacramento) and Capitol Park (15th and L streets). Both of these markets will run through Sept. 26 and be open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
May 7 will see another two farmers markets each Tuesday through Sept. 24: Fremont Park (16th and P streets, Sacramento) and Roosevelt Park (10th and P streets, Sacramento). These markets will also run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
If that's not enough local produce for you, the midtown farmers market at 20th and J streets now operates each Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. See, you now have no excuse for eating those fruits and veggies.
