I've been to both the Wed. Rampart one, and to Molto on Thursday, and although Molto has better quality, most everything is considerably more expensive. In comparison to the farmers markets in the Bay Area (where I'm from), the Vegas markets are a real disappointment, both in quality, and in selection. I base this statement on multiple visits to each market, both in and out of season.
re: Steve Green
Sad, but Steve is largely correct. I've been to the Tuesday Garden's Park and the Molto Mario markets. While they are clamouring and friendly with eager vendors giving samples they are both small and, of course, pricey. I remember a thread on here a while back about pricing and expectations for farmers markets, can't find it. A lot of people think of the FMs as flea markets and expect the pricing to be in line with those (I know my mother does). I'm hoping that the markets here grow in size and popularity. I like them.
