Year-Round Farmer’s Market Opens in Midtown Sacramento
On Wednesday, August 19, 2020, a new farmer’s market kicked off in midtown Sacramento. Hosted by the Midtown Association, the Winn market will be held weekly, year-round at Albert Winn Park, which is situated between 27th and 28th Streets, along P and Q Streets. Currently, the hours of operation are 3:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. every Wednesday. In November, the market will close a half-hour earlier.
The executive director of the Midtown Association issued a press release explaining that this new market will provide the community with additional access to fresh food in an open-air setting. Until the pandemic eases, attendees are required to wear a face mask and the market will also provide gloves, hand sanitizer stations, and extra masks for those who forgot to bring one. The vendors will maintain a six-feet separation between stations.
The market also intends to provide fitness classes, at no charge. Online registration is required to participate.
Beginning in September, CalFresh recipients will be able to use their EBT benefits to purchase food.

What to Look for at the Winn Market in Late Summer
Getting fresh, seasonal vegetables and fruits is the best part of visiting a farmers market. Here are some California farmer’s market favorites that should be in abundance this time of year.
Cabbage, a cruciferous vegetable in the same family as broccoli and kale, is inexpensive and abundant. It is also one of the most frequently-eaten vegetables on the planet. Cabbage is high in fiber, Vitamins K and C, and anti-oxidants, all while being incredibly low in calories. Because of its nutritional profile, cabbage soup has been a staple of fad diets for decades. The Golden State is number one in cabbage production. It is grown mostly along the central coast and in the desert region of Southern California.
Nectarines and Peaches
Similar in taste to a peach, nectarines have a tendency to be smaller than their fuzzy cousins. They have a shorter shelf life than peaches, as the latter receives some protection from their unique skins. Although Georgia is known as the Peach State, California is actually the top producer of both nectarines and peaches. August and September are the best months to buy California nectarines and peaches.
Peaches are high in selenium, Vitamins A and K, and phytochemicals that act as antioxidants. Peaches are frequently used in cosmetics, as their vitamins are believed to help regenerate skin tissue. They are known in Hungary as the “fruit of calmness”.
Here are other seasonal items to pick up at the Winn Market on Wednesdays.
- Bell Peppers
- Brussell Sprouts
- Chili Peppers
- Green Beans
