The first stop for foodies in Sacramento is Midtown, a vibrant area famed for first-class dining and the popular Midtown Farmers Market. The market hosts regular demonstrations by professional chefs and appealing booths selling specialist craft products. The neighbourhood is also known for its interesting art galleries and regular 2nd Saturday Art Walk - a monthly fair that showcases local artists with wine and live music. The top tourist attraction in Midtown is Sutter's Fort State Historic Park.
