Sacramento Musts for the Foodie
Rick Mahan is a Sacramento legend whose Farm to Fork restaurant The Waterboy is an institution. Here, Rick shares his 'Perfect Sacramento Day for the Foodie' with Visit Sacramento.
"I'd start with coffee at Temple in Midtown."
Midtown Farmer's Market
"Then, I'd visit the Saturday Farmer's Market on 20th Street in Midtown for some fruits and various breakfast items, like scones, breads, jams, etc."
Lunch at Corti Bros. or Taylor's Market
"Afterwards, I’d head to Corti Brothers or Taylor’s Market for sandwiches and side dishes, like a bottle of Rose."
Bike the American River Parkway
"Then, pack it all up and jump on your bike and head for the American Parkway Bike Trail. You can take a leisurely ride out to Soil Born Farms and have a picnic, stroll around and perhaps take a quick siesta."
Hit the SacYard Tap House
"Then, take a gentle ride back for a beer at the SacYard Tap House in East Sac."
Dinner, Drinks and Bed
"I'd follow that up with a shower, a change of clothes and dinner at any one of Sacramento's great Farm to Fork establishments, followed by a late night beverage at the The Jungle Bird before bed!"
