North Tahoe Summer Farmers’ Markets

By May 31, 2014No Comments

It’s a short season for farmers’ markets in the Tahoe area, so, when they come to town, everyone comes out for a taste of summer! The spread which awaits you includes everything from fresh fruits and veggies to fresh fish and bread to local coffee and a little craft.  Tahoe City has kicked off the season early this year with their first market last Thursday and Truckee will be the longest standing market going into October.  Come join in the fun atmosphere and pick up the freshest core ingredients for your meal.

My favorite farmers’ market is about 45 minutes away from Truckee at Sierra Valley Farms.  There’s nothing like a farmers’ market on the farm and as the only “on-farm” farmers’ market in the state of California, this is a unique opportunity and a great day trip activity.  Every Friday from now until September 19th, the farm comes alive with fruits, vegetables, fresh seafood, local grown beef, pastas, flowers, wines, cheeses, specialty condiments, fresh baked breads, and desserts for sale.  Make sure to be there at noon for the cooking demonstrations, put on by some of the most prestigious chefs in the area, followed by a tasting of their creations.  You will find Gary Ramano, owner and operator of Sierra Valley Farms, at many of the other famers’ markets, but, joining him at the farm is something you will be talking about for the rest of the summer!
