Riverside Farmer's Market
The Riverside Farmer's Market is a great year-round place, for anyone who loves fresh, local produce and a lively community atmosphere. Located in the heart of downtown Reno, right along the river, this market offers a wide variety of locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as fresh meats, baked goods, and artisanal crafts. They are open on Sunday morning year-round.
One of the standout features of the Riverside Farmer's Market is the incredible variety of products available and the commitment to sourcing from producers that are from as tight of a circle around Reno as possible and farming as sustainably as possible. The market is home to dozens of vendors, each offering its own unique selection of fruits and vegetables.
In addition to the wide variety of fresh produce, the Riverside Farmer's Market is also home to a number of fantastic artisanal food vendors. From freshly baked bread and pastries to small-batch jams and sauces, there's no shortage of delicious treats to sample and take home. And for those who want to enjoy a meal on the spot, there are plenty of food vendors selling everything from tacos and burgers to hot dogs and crepes.
But what really sets the Riverside Farmer's Market apart is the sense of community that pervades the whole space. Whether you're chatting with a friendly vendor, sampling some fresh fruit, or just soaking up the bustling atmosphere, there's a palpable sense of joy and camaraderie that's hard to find anywhere else. It's the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon with friends or family, or to grab a quick lunch on a busy workday.
In the tour notes we’ve added the list of vendors and made notes about some of the food and artisan food vendors that are growing organically, regeneratively, or using organic ingredients. Not all of the vendors are at the market every week, so contact them directly, if you are looking for something specific. There may be separate tours for some of their vendors, so keep an eye out in the virtual location list to find them.
