Farmers Market Revival

In 2000, our co-op formed a small exploratory committee with the mission of bringing a local farmers market to Quincy. The Quincy Farmers Market was established thanks to our leaders’ collective passion for making local food more accessible for consumers and more merchantable for local farmers. The market was located on the corner of Harbison and Grover Alley.

Quincy Natural Foods Co-op, now known as Feather River Food Co-op, was proud to host the farmers market for 19 years, until it was disbanded in 2019. Since then, there have been a number of other markets that have come and gone.

In early 2024, there were internal rumblings of a potential revival of our beloved market. We began talking with Rugged Roots Farm (Lost Sierra Food Project) to gauge the interest of local farmers and vendors. Lost Sierra Food Project was eager to hop on board this project and we feel very fortunate to have them involved. Their mission is to increase access to local foods for Plumas County residents while prioritizing underserved populations, providing workforce development programs, and creating educational food and farming opportunities. Their passion for supporting our local food system will offer essential guidance in the market’s revitalization process.

We have officially formed a Farmers Market Revival Committee with six members. Our first step is to secure funding for the market. We are currently working on applying for the Farmers Market Promotion Program Grant, which is specifically designed to fund projects like this. Our plan is to bring back the Quincy Farmers Market by June 2025.

We need YOUR HELP in reviving our beloved market! A list of potential sponsors and volunteers are needed to meet the grant’s requirements.
