It’s happened once again, snuck right up on us when we were not looking: Summer! Which among other wonderful things means Tahoe is inundated with a luscious supply of weekly Farmer’s Markets. A chance to take a slow walk past beautiful fruit and produce, arts, crafts and delicious food. Nothing says summer more then fresh, wholesome food just picked and ready to eat. And the best thing is if you miss the Farmers Market in your town, there is probably another one in the next town over in another day or two. Here are the regular markets you can find in the Tahoe-Truckee region.
