New Farmers Market Opens Downtown

Listen
AIR DATE: July 21, 2011

A new farmers market opened for business last week, offering straight-from-the-farm produce to Las Vegans.  The Fremont East District farmers market offers 12-plus tables of Southern Nevada fruits and vegetables.  What can locals buy there?  How does it compare to farmers markets in other cities?  And why are there so few local farmers markets here in Las Vegas?  The market's founder and local growers weigh in.  Tell us what you think!

GUESTS
Gina Gavan, founder, Fremont East District Market
Marilyn Yamamoto, local grower, Cowboy Trail Farms
Mark Ruben, local grower, Gilchrese Orchard

I am so excited for a downtown FM! Will there be a community garden in the works for downtown?
