Harvest Market to feature vendors, chili, salsa and raffles

Lassen Land and Trails Trust is hosting a final fall Farmers Market for the season — chili, salsa and raffles included!

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, attendees are invited to the Harvest Market at the Susanville Railroad Depot, located at 601 Richmond Road.

“Although we aren’t hosting our usual Rails to Trails Festival this year, we have had such a great success at the Farmers Market that we decided to host one more farmers market,” wrote LLTT Project Manager Amy Holeman.

Former Rails to Trails chili winners, Black Beard’s Delight, and salsa winner, Tractor Supply Co., are bringing back their contest-winning dishes for individual and family servings.

Tickets for the chili and salsa meals can be purchased ahead of time online or at the event.

Attendees can also enter to win either a Traeger Pro Series 22 Pellet Grill, retail value $699, donated by Susanville Ace Hardware, or a Dewalt 20V MAX Lithium-Ion Drill Driver/Impact Driver Combo Kit, retail value $199.99, donated by Tractor Supply Co.

Raffle tickets may also be purchased online or at the event. Winners do not need to be present to win.

As with the usual Farmers Market, face coverings and social distancing will be required. Free masks will be provided.

“The Lassen Land and Trails Trust would also like to take this opportunity to thank our community, vendors and volunteers for the support of this year’s Farmers Market. Despite the challenges we all faced this summer, the Farmers Market was successful and a fun place to be,” read a statement from the organization.

LLTT also expressed appreciation for sponsors, including Lassen Rural Bus, Les Schwab Tires, Sierra Central Credit Union, Susanville Supermarket, Smith Properties, Banner Lassen Medical Center, C&S Waste Solutions, Susanville Ace Hardware and Jackson’s Service Center.

“The amazing support of these businesses has been critical to our success in 2020,” read the statement.

“The goal of the Lassen Land and Trails Trust is to conserve significant natural areas and agricultural landscapes, promote education of natural resources and enhance a public trail system throughout Lassen County. With your help, we can make this happen, for ourselves, for our children, and future generations to come. Please become a member or donate online or by mail,” continued the statement.
