Reno Public Market is a modern take on a traditional concept – a place where you can connect with friends and family, get a casual bite to eat, buy fresh produce, sample craft beer or purchase the latest fashions.
In 1923, Anthony Casazza purchased 140 acres of ranchland between what is now Plumb Lane and Vassar Street. Forty years later, the Casazza family transitioned from ranching to retail, opening a $2.4 million shopping complex on the property known as Shoppers Square. Business started at a humble pace – the first tenant was a drugstore, then came a grocery store, followed by 15 shops.
For more than 50 years, Shoppers Square served as a trusted and convenient retail and cultural center for thousands of Reno families – a place where on any given day visitors might catch a glimpse of a polling station or Santa Claus while picking up groceries or perusing a shop.
