Midtown Farmers Market provides plenty of fresh & fabulous ways to give thanks in November

The Midtown Association (MA) is pleased to present a robust offering of fresh fruit, produce and locally-made gourmet items plus special holiday related activities in November at the popular and thriving Midtown Farmers Market. Proudly 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.  As a highlight, a crowd-favorite activity is an entertaining cooking demonstration on the first Saturday of each month presented by a talented Midtown chef and sponsored by University of the Pacific, Sacramento Campus. The year-round market takes place on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on 20th Street beginning at J Street.*  

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

  • November 4 & 11 – “THANKS Giveaway Basket" contest where guests can enter for the chance to win a basket full of Midtown Farmers Market goods. The randomly drawn winner will be announced on November 14th via social media;
  • November 4 at 11 a.m. – Chef Dane Blom, Hawks Provisions + Public House;
  • November 11  – fresh centerpiece and table top ideas and tips for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday;
  • November 18  – “Know Your Grow” hands-on educational experiences for kids by Sol Collective;  
  • November 25 (Small Business Saturday) – talented local artisans offering hand-crafted specialty goods plus Midtown Farmers Market guests can stop by the Small Business Saturday “Welcome Station” to pick up complimentary  #ShopSmall canvas tote bags while supplies last.

“With the holiday season upon us, November is the perfect time to visit the year-round Midtown Farmers Market to find amazing farm-fresh ingredients ready to share with friends and family,” said Emily Baime Michaels, Executive Director of the Midtown Association. “Plus, the Market is a great Small Business Saturday stop to support talented local artisans offering unique, hand-crafted gift ideas.”

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.
