Another fantastic community event not to be missed in historic Tahoe City. On the shores of Lake Tahoe at Commons Beach, the Tahoe City Downtown Association, Tahoe City Public Utility District and Foothill Farmers Market come together to offer visitors and residents access to California certified farm-fresh, fruits, vegetables, flowers, and more.
This annual event runs from May through October every Thursday afternoon in the Commons Beach parking lot in Downtown Tahoe City. While a Farmers Market is nothing new to most, this market is literally the most beautiful place you'll ever buy strawberries or try a flatbread with curry. Our market vendors get on a waiting list to be at the Tahoe City market and coupled with an afternoon exploring Downtown or lunch on the beach, it's a great way to spend the day in Tahoe City.
The Tahoe City Farmers Market on Commons Beach is the most scenic market in the Sierra Nevada.
8am – 1pm
Every Thursday from May 27th – September 30th
Each Thursday, throughout the summer, the Tahoe City Downtown Association has a booth at the Tahoe City Farmers Market promoting human-powered transportation through its year-long Pedal There Program. At the booth you'll find local bike path maps, bike bells for sale, surveys and commitment cards in which participants can sign up for email updates and pledge to ride their bikes all year long.
Background - The Tahoe City Pedal There program was created in 2007 to encourage cycling in and around the Downtown Tahoe City area. Pedal There was funded in 2010 by New Belgium Brewing and together with the Downtown Association, proudly promote cycling to and from the Tahoe City Farmers Market.
