While Sacramento celebrates being known as America’s Farm-to-Fork Capital in September, the Midtown Association (MA) continues to supply a variety of special offerings and activities at the popular and thriving Midtown Farmers Market. 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.*
In addition to a free bike valet presented in partnership with Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates, guests to the Midtown Farmers Market can look forward to the following this month (that is also recognized nationally as Fruits & Veggies: More Matters month):
- September 15 — a Sol Collective children’s activity focused on fun veggie facts and sponsored by Fulcrum Property
- September 22 – sampling some Farm-to-Fork favorites throughout the Market
- September 29 –– from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – lively & fun music by Hugo Arias and sponsored by SMUD
“At the Midtown Farmers Market, we embrace our city’s Farm-to-Fork focus all year long but we have a number of special activities in September that highlight the locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables bursting with flavor, specialty products and gourmet foods,” said Emily Baime Michaels, Executive Director of the Midtown Association. “With an ever-changing assortment of offerings based on seasonality, we believe in feeding curiosity about where our food comes from while 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. Midtown Sacramento is both walkable and bike-friendly with 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. More information about the Midtown Farmers Market is available at MidtownFarmersMarketSac.com.
