New farmers market coming to southwest Las Vegas

Southwest Las Vegas residents will get a new farmers market option this fall.

Fresh52 Farmers and Artisan Market will host a farmers market at UnCommons, a mixed-use real estate development located just off the 215 Beltway and Durango Drive, starting on Sunday and running every other Sunday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., according to a news release. The Fresh52 market at UnCommons will run through the end of 2024, according to a UnCommons spokesperson.

The Fresh52 market at UnCommons will be open-air and feature an array of vendors selling organic produce, pasture-raised beef, honey, breads, desserts and handcrafted artisan items, according to the news release.

UnCommons wanted to add Fresh52 to its offerings to bolster its community events, said Amalie Zinsser, director of community and belonging at UnCommons.

“The addition of Fresh52 aligns perfectly with our ethos, providing a space for neighbors to come together and engage in a celebration of local produce and craftsmanship,” Zinsser said in a statement.

Fresh52 has been operating markets in Southern Nevada for over a decade and has six other market locations throughout Clark County, according to the market’s website. Adding another Fresh52 location to UnCommons allows the market to bring fresh produce and artisan products to a fast-growing area of the Las Vegas Valley, according to a statement from Fresh52’s owner Adam Thomas.

“This partnership with UnCommons allows us to continue our mission of fostering connections and celebrating our dynamic local community,” Thomas said. “We’re excited to bring our farmers market to the heart of Southwest Las Vegas and look forward to welcoming both familiar faces and new friends.”
