Opening day will feature Dig In! – the monthly Chef dining series at the Market
Farmers market customers and foodies from across the region are counting the days until the beginning of the 2013 West Sacramento Farmers Market.
The West Sacramento Farmers Market season begins Thursday, June 6, and will continue every Thursday until September 26, from 4:30p until dusk at its new location in the City Center.
About 25 vendor stalls brimming with farm-fresh produce, meats, specialty foods and baked goods will join a rotating selection of the regions finest mobile food trucks and
restaurants lining West Capitol Avenue, which will be closed off in both directions during market hours. In addition to a great collective of local farms and vendors, the West Sacramento Farmers’ Market will treat visitors to special events and workshops that will focus on lifestyle elements popular to those who have a passion for fresh and locally sourced goods.
The market will also showcase local personalities, paired with some of our region’s best chefs in a 100-seat outdoor dinner on the first Thursday of each month. Titled, Dig In! this special affair will give diners a taste of the fresh ingredients sourced directly from the market, while learning fun facts and tips directly from the chefs. Dig In! is not only for the foodies, but also for the community- a portion of the proceeds will be donated to local non-profit organizations. Expect a fun evening of fantastic fare, wine and great conversation.
Good Living at the Market is a series of workshops, focusing on different components of
healthy living: green living, food preservation, composting, bicycling and more. Featured guests will include various local chefs and the Yolo Master Gardeners.
Farm to Food Trucks will give opportunities to aspiring chefs, enabling them to share their cooking talents to the masses, all aboard one of Sacramento’s most popular food trucks, Wicked ‘Wich. Participants will have access to the bountiful ingredients at the market, and will be featured aboard the food truck on the last Thursday of each month.
The City of West Sacramento and Yolo County Transportation District played an integral role in relocating the market onto both sides of West Capitol Avenue between City Hall and the Community Center. Visitors will enjoy this brand new perspective of West Sacramento, as the market will draw people far and wide who truly understand- it all starts with the right ingredients.
