The Davis Farmers Market remains open as an essential grocery provider. The market has reorganized vendor booth setups and added significant spacing between sellers. Masks are required. Sellers wear gloves and masks, and typically select the produce for the customer.

The Washington Post called farmers markets “fresh, healthy and safe” during COVID-19. The June 18 story said, “Farmers markets can be a safer space to shop … due to their outdoor locations, and your food will pass through fewer hands, too, since markets are part of a shortened supply chain.”

Davis is known for its farmers markets, especially its flagship one in Central Park. Its Saturday market runs year-round from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Its Wednesday market is 3 to 6 p.m. through March 2021. The summer Picnic in the Park and UC Davis Farmers Market are on hold during the pandemic. Sutter Davis Hospital’s Farmers Market is 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursdays through October, at the hospital entrance.
