Celebrate Farm-to-Fork Month at the Midtown Farmers Market

Looking for fresh and fun ways to celebrate Farm-to-Fork month? The Midtown Farmers Market should be among your first stops in the month of September. Sponsored by Sutter Health, the Midtown Farmers Market offers up to 90 farmer, grower and vendor booths bursting with fresh fruit, produce, and gourmet or locally made goods each week. The year-round market takes place on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on 20th Street from J Street to Kayak Alley.*

Along with offering a bountiful selection of fresh and locally produced foods all year long, the Midtown Farmers Market guests can enjoy the following activities in September:

  • September 9 – 2nd Saturdays Artwalk activities with talented artisans offering hand-crafted specialty goods.
  • September 16 – “Know Your Grow” hands-on educational experiences for kids.
  • September 23 – a “pop-up” version of the Midtown Farmers Market will be set-up as part of the Farm-to-Fork Festival on Capitol Mall.
  • September 30 – Live music at the market.

“Being ‘Farm-to-Fork’ month, September is the perfect time to visit the year-round Midtown Farmers Market to sample and savor the bounty of our region,” said Emily Baime Michaels, Executive Director of the Midtown Association. “With an always unique and upbeat Midtown vibe and nearly 100 vendors offering delicious local edibles, we love feeding curiosity about where our food comes from and exchanging culinary concepts with local chefs, growers, farmers and one another.”

Originally launched in 2013, the Midtown Farmers Market continues to grow and evolve to reflect the dynamic and eclectic tastes of the surrounding neighborhood. The family-friendly Market is highlighted by locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables, specialty products and gourmet foods, great gift and garden finds in the mobile merchandise cart (every other week) plus plenty of dog and family-friendly patios for enjoying brunch.

Midtown Sacramento is both walkable and bike-friendly (with an on-site bike valet) and parking available in nearby garages located at 1801 L Street or the East End Garage on 17th Street between L & Capitol plus various lots throughout Midtown. Owned by the Midtown Association, the Midtown Farmers Market is managed by Unseen Heroes.
