Check it Out: Newcastle Produce


If you want to celebrate the region’s annual citrus harvest, make the trip to friendly Newcastle Produce, one of Placer County’s most delicious and enticing foodie treasures. I always welcome the opportunity to stop into this unique store/café, which is packed full of locally-grown produce and a raft of locally-crafted foodstuffs, from rustic artisan breads and preserves to cheeses and lots of in-house, pre-prepared menu items. It also offers a wonderful array of regional wines – many from very small producers that I haven’t seen anywhere else. It’s well worth the drive to quaint little old town Newcastle to check out this charming establishment.
