New Tahoe Central Market opens: “farm to you, overnight”

Last month, we were the first to tell you that a new market is opening in Kings Beach on Tahoe’s North Shore where you can find fresh, regional, organic produce and organic dairy products.

Tahoe Central Market at 8487 North Lake Blvd. is opening Monday, just in time for locals and visitors to stock up for their holiday dinners. With a motto “farm to you overnight,” the market will offer fresh, regional produce and organic dairy products.

It will be a joy to receive such a high quality of produce in the middle of winter. There are no year-round farmers markets, because of the wintry weather.

The new store is part of a growing trend to offer fresh, regional produce in Tahoe year-round — this time from the owners of Produce Plus, which we’ve featured in our magazine. We often see Produce Plus’ refrigerated trucks headed up I-80 from the Valley to Tahoe with fresh produce.

In addition, Tahoe Food Hub also is ramping up to deliver fresh, regional food to Tahoe locals and visitors with a refrigerated truck. Squaw is offering skiers and riders food trucks with fresh food, as we’ve reported previously.

Produce Plus is owned and operated by the Bob Habeger family, longtime North Lake Tahoe residents.

They are dedicated to supplying restaurant chefs in Truckee-Tahoe with year round, seasonal, specialty and whenever possible, local and organic produce.

Tahoe Central Market also is offering delicious homemade sandwiches, with fresh sides from the gourmet deli, daily soup menu, juice bar, beer and wine and more. It uses family owned suppliers from the region, and you can order your Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) boxes there too.

The market offers Boars Head Premium Deli meats and cheeses. Fresh pasta will be available by noon. The market is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
