Your Guide to Enjoying the 26th Annual Mountain Mandarin Festival

SaveMart Mandarin Marketplace – Fresh Mandarins to Sample, Purchase or Mail Order

When autumn days in the Placer County foothills are warm and the nights are cold, mandarin orange growers anxiously await the first blush of color on their fruit. Just before Thanksgiving, samples are eagerly tasted for sweetness and then long hours are spent hand-snipping each stem to bring in the first crop of the season for the Mountain Mandarin Festival.  You will find fresh mandarins and unlimited samples at growers’ stands throughout the fairgrounds.  Local growers offer fresh fruit, gift baskets, and a variety of fruit to taste. Throughout the Festival growers are offering fresh oranges that are chocolate dipped, locally produced mandarin syrups, marinades and salad dressings, fresh mandarin milkshakes, and gift packages available for holiday shipping.
