Good, reasonable dinners in Reno? Also, area farmers markets?

Steve Green | Jul 30, 2009 10:07 PM

We'll be staying in Reno for a few nights -- will be spending most of our days in Tahoe, and we have that pretty well covered. However, we're not familiar with Reno and will be looking for some good dinners. Italian, Chinese, Thai, Indian, and BBQ are possibilities. Or maybe a good diner. What's best in these categories on a budget? Atmosphere isn't really a consideration, just great food. Also, we will probably be pulling into town late on a Monday night. What are our options, say for 9 or 10 PM?

One other thing: What's the best Tuesday or Wednesday farmers market in either Tahoe or Reno? I ask because we once went to a market held at the Biltmore in Crystal Bay, and it was truly pathetic --- almost as bad as the so-called farmers markets here in Vegas. Hey, I'm not expecting SF Ferry Plaza, but am hoping for a nice selection of fresh fruit and veg that should be noticeably better that what's available at the grocery store. I did a search and found the following for Tuesdays:
Reno: Shoppers Square
Sparks: United Methodist Church
South Lake Tahoe: Certified Farmers Market
Kings Beach: State Rec. Area

Wednesday: Somersett Towne Square, Reno

Any preferences?
