The Esmeralda Market & RV Park was built in 1978 by the Williams’ who had been farming the area since the late 1950’s. After the original store and gas pump burned it was obvious that the community needed another establishment to take its’ place since the nearest town was Bishop, California or Tonopah, Nevada …both over 75 miles in different directions. A grocery store and gas station was built.
The store carries most of the needed camping basics and staple foods like bread, produce, dairy, frozen and packaged deli foods. As well as a made to order deli with fresh sandwiches (everything from cold turkey to hot pastrami), our signature breakfast & lunch burritos, burgers, chicken strips & wedges, and our monster salads!
As our local country store we also carry hunting / fishing licenses, automotive supplies, liquor, tobacco, ice, beer, gas and diesel.
Our motto: “ If we’ve got it, and you want it, we’ll make it! “
