Growers of local produce and craft makers from in and around Nevada County gathered on the greens of the historic North Star House to sell their wares at the Nevada County Certified Farmers Market Saturday morning.

The smells of botanical infused soaps from Nevada City's Deer Creek Botanicals invited shoppers along with Mother's Day specials.

Nearby, Laura Columbel's collection of fresh flowers nearly sold out by the end of the day. Columbel grew the flowers on The James Ranch in Penn Valley where sheep manure is used as fertilizer. The family also offers grass-fed lamb meat as well as wool from their family ranch.

Other vendors offered fresh fruit, vegetables, local honey, and arts and crafts.

The Nevada County Certified Farmer's Market continues through Nov. 18 on Saturdays at the North Star House, Tuesday mornings at Nevada County Horsemen, and Thursday mornings at Western Gateway Park in Penn Valley.
