In an era of Amazon and one-click purchasing, it may be strange to think that people would ever choose to leave the comfort of their homes to make a purchase. Yet each weekend, thousands set down their laptops and tablets, however temporarily, to take a pass or two through the 70-acre treasure chest that is Denio’s Farmers Market & Swap Meet.
Eric, Tracie & Ken Denio
What is it about Denio’s that drives these people out of their air-conditioned homes and into Northern California’s largest outdoor swap meet? That’s simple; corn dogs the likes of which you have never tasted anywhere else. Golden beauties so good that numerous contestants gather each year for the Corn Dog Eating Contest to sacrifice their next six months-worth of cheat days to the corn dogs’ deliciousness. Of course, there’s also the fresh produce that has been a staple at Denio’s since Jim Denio founded the establishment in 1947. But what started as a single individual’s produce stand has expanded to include a vegetarian’s dreamland, 2-acres worth of different produce stands that consistently cut grocery store prices by more than half.
But great food is not all that Denio’s has to offer these days. New entertainment options are constantly being thrown into the mix; anything from pony rides to zip lines to classic car shows and live music can be found at Denio’s, giving every member of the family a reason to get outside and enjoy their weekend away from the computer screen.
And as a family owned and operated business since the very beginning, Denio’s always puts families first. There are currently five generations of Denio’s today, three of which can be found working in the market on any given weekend. From offering entertainment like petting zoos to wiener dog races and regulating the products that can be sold at the market, Denio’s maintains a warm, family-friendly atmosphere that sets the market apart from other weekend destinations.
