Admit it: You’ve always wondered why the Barn (985 Riverfront St.), West Sac’s art installation-slash-event venue is called that, especially since it doesn’t look like one. While the name may never be clear, it will at least be more thematic now that West Sac Urban Farming has opened up their latest plot in the space’s backyard—with a matching farmer’s market to boot. Every Thursday through Sept. 27, the local farming initiative will be selling the goods grown at their five locations scattered across Sacramento’s sister city across the river. The bounty they offer will, of course, always be on rotation, but the usual suspects include tomatoes, basil, summer squash, cucumbers, flowers, beets and more. The quarter-acre farm out back of the Barn is run by the Center for Land-Based Learning, a Winters-based organization that seeks to promote statewide organic farming and environmental stewardship. A word of warning: There is no official non-metered parking on site, so if you’re not in the mood to pay, be prepared to grab the goods and get out as soon as possible. If you balk at mild civil disobedience, check out their weekly “So Local!” Veggie Boxes, which give you a variety of produce, as well as discounts at West Sacramento’s own Yolo Brewing Company.
