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.
Now there is a full line grocery store (including meats, produce and dairy) as well as sporting goods and licenses, hardware, automotive supplies, liquor, tobacco, ice, gas, diesel, largest selection of fireworks in Central Nevada, and a 23 space RV park with rental cabins. Our newest addition is a hot & cold deli with fresh made sandwiches (everything from cold turkey to hot pastrami), our signature breakfast & lunch burritos, burgers, fried chicken, & monster salads! Our motto: “ If we’ve got it, and you want it, we’ll make it! “
