I received no compensation for this post. I just love farmers markets, especially well-organized events that go out of their way to make it a special time for individuals and families.

Farmers markets are part of ancient Egyptian history. Farmers would grow crops along the Nile and bring fresh produce to nearby towns to sell. Now the event takes place around the world. Some sell foods exclusively or include assorted goods.

Markets in the US consist of tents and tables lined on either side of the street or in a market square. Some areas sponsor indoor farmers markets to provide shelter from very hot or very rainy weather.

The farmers market in Fallon, NV is a friendly, family event held at 925 W Williams Ave every Tuesday afternoon between 5 and 8 pm from June through August. Local and organic produce is offered. Some booths feature local crafts, while others serve up delicious food and cold beverages. Entertainment varies, but is always well-received. Face-painting for the kids is a popular draw.

Fallon is known for its delicious cantaloupe. Zucchini squash, deep green cucumbers, and other fresh, locally-grown veggies are an impressive site. Nectarines, grapes, and plums are among the fruit grown throughout Nevada and California and brought to Fallon for the summer Tuesday sales.
