TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — The Foothill Farmers’ Market will continue operations in Truckee and Tahoe City. Find fresh fruits and vegetables in Tahoe City, now back at Commons Beach on North Lake Boulevard, Thursdays, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. through Sept. 26. The market at Truckee River Regional Park, 10500 Brockway Road off Highway 267, will run Tuesdays, 8 a.m.-1 p.m. through Oct. 8.

Spuds, just east of downtown Truckee, will continue selling produce Saturdays and Sundays through September. “Spud” Pribble travels to the foothills and valley each week to procure farm-fresh fruits and veggies. His search for the perfect tomato is a life-long quest. Find yours at Spuds roadside market.

Taste it as fresh as it gets at the “High Sierra Edible Garden Tour.” Slow Food Lake Tahoe will host a guided tour of beautiful edible gardens, Sept. 8, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Prosser and Truckee edible gardens of all shapes and sizes will be visited, from a four-season growing dome to a single-family, backyard veggie garden. Participants will leave with ideas for their own garden space and a few resources to get started. This event builds on Slow Food Lake Tahoe’s mission to reconnect the community to the enjoyment of local, seasonal and sustainable food by getting people to share ideas on how to grow their own good, clean and fair food.
