Treats has to be one of Nevada City’s greatest local treasures! We’ve sampled ice creams they’ve made in the past with local ingredients and really liked the flavors. Although I have had Alicia’s manzanita tea and other locally sourced foods, I haven’t ventured farther than using the rosemary growing like weeds in the yard. I’m not even sure that rosemary is close to being a native.
