LV farmers markets, other local foods?

Is there a great farmers market in Las Vegas or the surrounding area that would be worth a visit on a future trip? With each trip to Las Vegas, I wonder about the regional, non-casino-based food culture in town. Our server at Enoteca San Marco last week hinted at regional/seasonal elements of their menu and I should have asked her for more specifics, but wasn't in a quizzical mood that afternoon I guess. Will starting asking more questions about local provenence of ingredients on upcoming visits, especially dining off-Strip. But just curious in general if there are local farmstead cheesemakers, grass-feed beef producers, other artisan or small-production food businesses worth seeking out on menus in and around Vegas. The only obviously local ingredient I see on Rosemary's current online menu is Nevada peach coulis for the foie gras. I know it's the middle of the desert and all, but thought perhaps small farm operations could be found in the area.
