  • Nevada City to host Village Market Day


    Nevada City’s Downtown MeetUp and Chamber of Commerce will hold its first annual Nevada City Village Market Day from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, May 20.

    The city, which recently received a California Cultural District Designation, will host numerous activities that will coincide with the 8th annual Nevada City Craft Fair that takes place from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Miners Foundry Cultural Center. Village Market Day expands on Nevada City’s annual SideWalk Sale.

    Visitors will be welcomed by street musicians like Janssen Kuhn, a violinist who will serenade them as they stroll among antique and vintage vendors throughout the town, including Ms Kitty’s Antique Collectibles of Nevada City and Kitkitdizzi, which will display their vintage clothes collection. There will also be hand-made toys and tea-cup art vendors. 

    Local restaurants will have specials, as well. For example, 3Forks will offer 10 percent off for lunches and Treats 25 cents off for each scoop of ice cream. Special gallery exhibits featuring local artists will be on display as well. A guide map will be available to visitors. 

    The Craft Fair will feature over 70 local residents and their handmade crafts.
