In 2007 the Nevada City Chamber of Commerce conducted the “Great Nevada City Survey” and 89% of respondents called for the creation of a walkable marketplace. Under the leadership of City Councilwomen Reinette Senum the Nevada City Farmers Market Association was created. It is a joint venture of the community, local farmers who practice sustainable agriculture, and local businesses.
Our mission is to enhance the quality of life and economic resilience of our community by providing access to high quality, locally grown products. To support regional, sustainable producers through direct access to consumers. To create a community meeting place and to foster consumer education.
Each Saturday from June to November more than 30 vendors join a group of loyal volunteers to create a vibrant community event on Union Street in downtown Nevada City.
