FALLON –– Cooperative farming and increased demand for locally grown food have sparked the opening of the new Growers Market at Lattin Farms in Fallon. The public is invited to a ribbon cutting ceremony at noon on Aug. 13 at Lattin Farms, 1955 McLean Road, Fallon, to celebrate the grand opening. Regular hours will be 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The market will be closed on Sundays.

The new market is an expansion of the original Lattin Farms farm stand which has been operating since the 1980s. Last winter, a 2,000-square-foot covered facility was built next to the original roadside stand. Five Nevada farms, including four new farms, will sell produce alongside Lattin Farms.

“The Growers Market will give our customers more of what they want when they want it,} said Rick Lattin, owner of Lattin Farms, “and it will give new farmers a market to sell their product. It's exciting to see new farmers in Nevada.”

Pioneer Farms, Nanadew Herb Farm, Chickie Baby Blooms, Salisha's Delicious and Dawn's Dream Acres will offer produce at the market.

Five varieties of cantaloupe, sweet corn, watermelon, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, peppers, eggplant, herbs, fresh cut flowers, and more are currently available at the market. Customers can also find jams and jellies, honey, and fresh baked goods from the on-farm bakery.

“We've got a bumper crop this year,” Lattin said. “If you want to can tomatoes or make pickles, now's the time to come to the farm. We've got great prices — and we've got Hearts O' Gold melons."
