Thursday Farmers Market
Every Thursday morning throughout the summer and into fall it’s time to pick up your fruits and veges, grass fed meat, fish direct from the ocean, or sample some fine cheese at the Tahoe City Farmers Market. After you found your treasures The Commons is the perfect place to dive into that just ripe peach. The views so nice, you might have to eat the second peach as well. But don’t dilly dally getting to the market, because the hours are just 8 am to 1 pm.
Sunday Concerts on the Beach
A highlight of summer in Tahoe City are the Sunday evening concerts on the beach from June 17 through September 2nd. Concerts run from 4 pm to 7 pm with a host of great local and regional bands gracing the stage. While the music will get you dancing, it’s the setting that will blow you away. Bring a low back chair and a picnic basket full of food and wine and sit on the grass with a thousand friends. When the lake is high like it is now, you can also float your way into the concert via kayak or paddleboard. It’s pretty dang nice to float just off shore watching the crowd and listening to the music.
