The Davis market is not your typical one. Everyone finds a spot on the huge lawn and camps out while a live band performs. Kids take turns doing cartwheels in the lush grass, practice their hula hooping skills, and play croquet while the parents relax and enjoy the music while sipping a frosty pint of locally made beer (or lemonade in my case).
I was craving Indian so I ventured towards the Kathmandu Kitchen booth and tasting my way through all of the local produce vendors. Along the way, I picked up some strawberries, cherries, and peaches. After my shopping spree, I was starving and my veggie curry plate was just what I needed. I also found a fresh juice bar called Bare Juices and their Happy Beet juice was amazing. Sadly, I drank it all before I could snap a photo. If beets aren’t your thing though, they have other juices and smoothies too so don’t worry…there’s something for everyone!
I opted for a t-shirt and jeans to wear to the farmer’s market. I would have worn a dress but we were squatting in the grass so a dress wasn’t appropriate attire. It was also too hot for regular denim so I decided (with much trepidation) to wear my white jeans. What should have been a recipe for disaster for my jeans – me sitting in the grass at a farmer’s market – wasn’t so bad after all. I was excited to wear my new t-shirt along with my favorite sandals and trusty Speedy 25 handbag and it worked out perfectly.
