Coarsegold Market, California

A little bit more about our town.. The Coarsegold Market was started in 1850 and is still in existence. Through the years due to fires, new owners and changes in the area, the market has been relocated and is now on Highway 41, bordering the Coarsegold Creek. This painting on the side of the store depicts the history of gold panning, and what the old original store looked like. When we first moved here about 10 years ago.. A bear was found to be rummaging through the trash can near the store. We are about 1 hour from the southern entrance to Yosemite National Park.

  1. What would we do without the market???
    Many moons ago when I cam home from the hospital after giving birth to jillian they allowed my mother to sign for groceries and they even offered to deliver them if we wanted to phone in an order. They were/are really a big part of the community...neighbors...in the business of serving.
