Fish market, year-round farmers market in NC

Here’s a big “economic brightspot” for downtown Nevada City: I hear a fresh fish market and year-round farmers market is coming to town.

If all goes well, the fish market and year-round stalls for a farmers market will come to the long-vacant space across from Taylor-Drake furniture on Spring Street. Completion is set for May.

The fish market is expected to be a satellite retail space for Nevada City Seafood, oddly enough located in Grass Valley. (The Whispering Pines location is a good space for processing the fresh fish that comes up regularly from Fisherman’s Wharf, but the store needs a more visible retail outlet).

I’m a big fan of the Rockridge Market in Berkeley, a collection of fresh food stalls, and this is a similar concept. In the winter months, the food stalls in NC could be rented for plants if there aren’t enough fresh vegetables.

Let’s hope this deal is completed. It’s an excellent business concept to bring locals to the downtown!

  1. Good stuff Jeff. All sorts of jockeying and repositioning of businesses is taking place in this recession and it is fascinating. Keep the news of economic developments (both expansion and retraction) coming!

  2. Let’s hope Eric Juell, the proprietor, continues to love his regimen, which includes driving his truck to the San Francisco wharf several times a week in the wee hours. He says he loves it, fortunately for us.

    We make the trek to his Whispering Pines outlet at least once a week.
