Summer…my favorite time of the year for fresh fruit and vegetables! And Nevada County offers a huge selection of farmers markets to choose from. Grass Valley, Nevada City, Penn Valley and other surroundings area host farmers markets where we can gather great fruit, vegetables and other food items to enjoy. Farm to table at it’s purest and best.
Farmers from around California come to sell their farm fresh items. Here is Nevada County we are blessed to have farmers markets available to us on several different days of the week, and a variety of locations make it convenient. From South Nevada County to Penn Valley the farmers market are sprinkled through out the week in various locations.
My favorite is Thursday Night Market in Downtown Grass Valley. This event takes place On Thursdays evening 5:30pm to 9pm in Historic downtown Grass Valley. Similar to other events downtown Grass Valley throughout the year, Mill Street is closed to traffic and all sorts of vendors set up booths selling everything from fresh fruits to homemade bath soap and more. They are also offer street concerts for your listening enjoyment. Thursday Night Market takes the usual farmers market to a whole new level, supported by Grass Valley’s Downtown Association.
So take a peek below at all your choices. I encourage you to check out the various markets. We are so lucky to have in our back yard so many talented, hard-working local farmers committed to bringing fresh-picked food to out tables!
