Renoites at the Riverside Farmer's Market is a limited Renoites series with the vendors of the Riverside Farmer's Market in Reno, Nevada and hosted by Renoites host Conor McQuivey. The year-round farmer's market takes place Sunday mornings at Idlewild Park from 8-1. You can find Conor at the Renoites booth most weeks if you'd like to chat, share ideas, purchase merch or sign up to support the show financially, or just say hi!
Today's episode features Ryan Stark, owner of No City Coffee. No City has a brick and mortar location upstairs at the Great Basin Community Co-op (with plans for that space to expand to include prepared food and a big outdoor space) and Ryan has recently started serving his coffee at the Riverside Farmer's Market from his new coffee cart.
Ryan has worked in coffee for decades, here in Reno and elsewhere, including during the earliest days of Bibo Coffee, where he was the very first employee. We talked about what makes coffee the perfect beverage to have a conversation over, the advantages of partnering with the co-op to create unique and fresh ingredients, how coffee culture has grown in Reno, and much more!
