The harvest is bountiful and Placer County Foothill Farmers’ Markets are popping up all over the region. In addition to the two year-round markets in Old Town Auburn and at the Fountains in Roseville, eight certified seasonal farmers’ markets open in June, offering a wide variety of local, farm-fresh fruits, vegetables, flowers, nuts, honey, eggs, herbs and more.
“The Foothill Farmers’ Markets are celebrating 25 years in Placer County with a rich local agricultural history that dates back to 1849,” says Foothill Farmers’ Market Association and PlacerGROWN Executive Director Carol Arnold. “Whether you live in the area or are headed to Lake Tahoe to escape the heat, a visit to one of our markets is a delicious option for fresh produce, eggs and meats.”
Open nearly every day of the week, the PlacerGROWN seasonal Farmer’s Markets play a vital role in the region’s food scene with locations in Auburn, Foresthill, Granite Bay, Rocklin, Roseville, Tahoe City and Truckee.
