Get out and enjoy the Amador County Farmers' Markets, available four days a week throughout the county — in Pine Grove, Plymouth, Sutter Creek and Jackson.

Sample flavors of the county with Amador Olive Oil, offering high-quality olive oil from Amador County’s olive trees; or Lee’s Berries, which provide fresh strawberries, blackberries and other locally-grown produce. Find the perfect gift for a little one at Bunnies, where they supply 100 percent cotton children’s clothing including dresses, shirts, aprons and hats. Grab a loaf of handmade bread or gluten free baked goods from Kneading Dough Bakery or a hand-woven rug from White Bird. What a wonderful way to cover many of your household needs while supporting local farms, craftsmen and artists.

On Saturday, Aug. 23, the Sutter Creek market is having its “Tomato Tasting,” offering a variety of fresh samples, as well as those from the “Salsa Cook Off.” With local chefs, live music, solar demonstrations and a “Short Bread Cook-Off,” there is something for everyone. The Sutter Creek Farmers' Market happens every Saturday, from 9 a.m. to noon, in the Eureka Street parking lot.

In Jackson, the Farmers’ Market is on Sundays, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., in the Busi Municipal Parking Lot, located next to Mel’s Diner, on Highway 49, giving you plenty of time to walk up and down Main Street or wander the aisles at Hein & Co. Books.

The Pine Grove Market is held on Wednesdays, from 3 to 6 p.m., in the Pine Grove Community Park. With tree-shaded picnic tables and community activity, it is a great place for the kids to play and the family to enjoy the evening.

Every Thursday, from 4 to 7 p.m., in Plymouth’s McGee Park, on Main Street, the air is filled with music, fun and laughter as children roll down the grassy knoll or swing at the playground. You can sample Amador vino as the Plymouth Foothills Rotary offers wine by the glass to enjoy as you peruse the market.
