Shopping in the dark

Farmers markets have proliferated within the Sacramento region, allowing shoppers to peruse an open-air market on almost any day. But at night, the opportunities for this social experience are scarce. To remedy this—at least for one night in Davis—The Good Scoop partnered with Sudwerk Brewing Co. to bring out some of the region’s finest vendors in an under-the-stars celebration of local artisans. Hosted at Sudwerk (2001 Second Street) from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on October 14, the Davis Night Market’s food options will include pizzas from Hot Italian, fresh fish from Zumapoke & Lush Ice and tasty bites of Japanese fusion from the Koizora food truck. To mark the debut of a potentially reoccurring event, Sudwerk will be pouring its Estate Lager, brewed with hops grown on its own property. The event will also bring out the Bakuhatsu Taiko drumming club from UC Davis, so even if Davis residents can’t smell the market, they’ll hear it.
