October 9, 2012 – From Granite Bay to Lake Tahoe, Placer County is home to hundreds of family-farmers, 18 award-winning wineries and 20 farmers’ markets. “Celebrate PlacerGROWN Week,” proclaimed by the Placer County Board of Supervisors, is a week dedicated to celebrating the bounty of PlacerGROWN farm-fresh produce and agriculture. The celebration kicked off today at the Roseville farmers’ market at the Fountains at Roseville. Area residents are now invited to celebrate at one of two local events throughout the week.
