Many Las Vegas residents assume that since we live in the middle of a desert, we have no option but to patronize corporate chain supermarkets in order to get the fruits, veggies, nuts and herbs we need to feed ourselves and our families. But even in a city known for artificial lights and piped in water, we can access farm fresh, local produce. Las Vegas has multiple, weekly, farmer's markets where growers, artisans and craftsmen display their garden-fresh food, herbs and spices, artisan breads, and one of a kind crafts. Not only can you save money, eat fresher food, and support local farmers and food co-ops, but you can find organic and specialty items not available at your local grocery store.
Farmer's Markets are a fun way for the entire family to enjoy a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. They offer arts and crafts for the kids, community activities and live entertainment. You can even transform your weekly produce shopping trip into a fun family outing!
Living in the heart of the urban downtown is no reason to sacrifice farm fresh foods. The newest location to debut a farmer's market is the downtown 3rd district. Whether in Northwest Las Vegas, the Summerlin area, Spring Valley, or Downtown, there is a market nearby where every week you can purchase the freshest offerings for your dinner table. A couple of handy tips for shopping local farmer's markets: Bring your own reusable bag and make sure to have cash on hand.
