The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook
Farmers Market has recently found itself in the national spotlight.
US News and World Report listed the market last week as No. 5 in
its top 10 breakdown of farmers markets from around the country,
and USA Today also noted Davis in a May travel feature titled "10
great places to shop at a farmers market." The timing couldn't be
better for consultant, author and Davis resident Ann M. Evans. Her
new book, co-authored with Georgeanne Brennan, is "The
Davis Farmers Market Cookbook
