The farmer’s market just completed its 20th season at the Historic Susanville Railroad Depot on Richmond Road. Its certification from the California Department of Food and Agriculture means that consumers are purchasing foods directly from the farmers and ranchers who grew or produced the products.

During most seasons the local market features about 20 vendors from Lassen County and surrounding areas. Fruits, vegetables, meats and prepared foods ranging from pies to tamales are usually available along with crafts from local artisans. Music and information presentations are often part of the market, as well.
