The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook celebrates America’s favorite farmers market’s 40th anniversary year. Author and market co-founder Ann M. Evans invites you to shop and cook through the seasons in vibrant Davis, California. Over thirty market farmers are introduced in these pages, giving readers the opportunity to get to know the people who produce and sell the foods they buy each week. This revised edition includes twenty new recipes and a year of monthly menus for festive food-focused gatherings. The book also highlights the role of second-generation farmers (including Capay Organic) at the market and programs that bring farm fresh food into the schools.
About the producer
Ann M. Evans is one of the founding members of the Davis Food Co-op, which grew out of an informal buying club initially established by the residents of the on campus co-ops in spring 1972, and she also co-founded the Davis Farmers Market in 1975.
Formerly a nutrition education consultant with the California Department of Education, Evans assisted school districts in developing a hands-on, "full-circle" environmental learning experience for children from the garden-to-cafeteria and back. A food writer as well, Evans has written a biweekly column on food and agriculture titled "Fork in the Road" for The Davis Enterprise.
Evans worked with the partnership, Evans & Brennan, for 10 years, which worked for local government to define place through marketing of food, wine and agriculture in the region, and with school districts to increase farm fresh food on the school lunch plate in five flavor profiles representative of the heritage of the people of California. She now has a publishing imprint, Elderflower Press, and is the author of the national award-winning Davis Farmers Market Cookbook.
