Family Fun: 2015 North Lake Tahoe Farmers’ Markets

Farmers Market Display

It’s hard to believe it’s that time of year again. With the late spring snow in Tahoe it may feel strange to think about celebrating summer at Farmers’ Market, but it’s right around the bend! Before you know it you’ll be stocking up on fresh fruits and vegetables for the summer—great snacks to take on the trail hiking or biking, while hanging out at Squaw Valley, or entertaining lakeside.

We revere winter, but summer has its special charm, its ‘epicness.’ In the local community we often hear, “I came for a summer at Lake Tahoe and never left.”

Farmers Market Tahoe City By Water

Farmers’ Markets at Tahoe City and Truckee are a great way to get to know the local farmers, vendors, and close-knit community. Chat it up with Tahoe and Sacramento Valley based vendors–maybe even bump into well-known chefs getting ready for their evening menues.

Tahoe City Farmers’ Markets run Thursdays from 8am to 1pm, May 28 to June 18 at Commons Beach; and at Tahoe Lake Elementary School June 25 to August 20. Truckee Farmers’ Markets run Tuesdays from 8am to 1pm at Truckee River Regional Park, June 2 to October 20.

5th Annual Pain McShlonkey Classic at Squaw Valley

PMS2015_forWillie

This weekend marks the 5th Annual Pain McShlonkey Classic at Squaw Valley in honor and remembrance of a Squaw legend, Shane McConkey. For the extreme athlete who actually coined the term freeskiing, Shane and his alter ego ‘Saucer Boy’ (Pain McShlonkey) left an indelible mark on our local mountain and the modern ski industry as we know it.

In celebration of Shane’s wacky personality and creative mind, the Pain McShlonkey Classic is an on and off mountain event, where the world’s top winter athletes compete for the podium – on snowblades, of course!

The Hot Dog Downhill competition kicks off at 9am on Saturday, March 14, followed by a Snowblade Slalom Invitational; lots of drinks, grub and entertainment on the KT Sun Deck, and then an afternoon Costume Contest. Don’t forget to purchase your ticket for The Shane McConkey Legacy Gala, a legendary event in 1970’s NYC nightclub fashion–just the way Shane would like it.

Do you still need a room for the weekend? Stay just a hop, skip and jump from the event. Check out our rates HERE!
