Every year on the first Saturday of March, the Davis Farmer's Market observes National Pig Day. Adults, children, and animals dress up in piggy regalia: pig-themed craft tables abound, sweetbread bakery rolls from Upper Crust Baking Co. are shaped like pigs, a piggy petting zoo is featured, strangely or not-so-strangely enough, bacon is served with breakfasts compliments of the Food Bank of Yolo County...all in all, it's a fun affair, this Pig Day.
Petting Zoo Etiquette
This may seem obvious, but parents should make sure to teach their children how to treat animals, and keep an eye on them while they are participating in the petting zoo. No picking up the piglets, pulling their tails, stepping on them, or shaking them violently to wake them up.
