It definitely feels like summer when farmers arrive every Tuesday and Friday at the South Lake Tahoe Farmers' Market with a variety of freshly harvested gifts from the earth. You'll find fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers in abundance. Agricultural products such as honey, jams, jellies, preserves, and baked goods are featured as well as nursery stock and natural fibers.
Tuesday's Market at the American Legion on Lake Tahoe Boulevard provides your weekday produce, and then come back on Friday from 3pm to 8pm for the market on historic Ski Run Boulevard to replenish your refrigerator with fresh products for weekend meals and entertaining.
In addition to nature's bounty, both South Lake Tahoe Farmers' Markets feature art and products made by residents of the local community.
