Farm to Fork

Farm-to-Fork LogoWe take fresh food seriously in Sacramento. Our chefs tap into the 1.5 million acres of surrounding farmland to create some of the nation's most delicious cuisine. And with a year-round growing season that produces more than 120 crops, there's always something local that's cooking. Whether you're in the mood for a burger or a four-course meal, your dining experience in Sacramento likely started at a local farm.

The farm-to-fork fun doesn't end once your plates have been cleared. From tours, to cooking classes, to farmers markets, Sacramento has something to please everyone's palate. Visit to learn more about culinary adventures in Sacramento.
