James Denio was the founder along with his wife Marilee of Denio's Roseville Farmers Market and Auction in 1947. Initially only one person sold produce near the Southern Pacific Railroad Yard. The enterprise grew and within fifteen years of its founding "Denio's was known as the largest, cleanest, and most efficiently run farmer's market, auction, and bazaar in California." More additions to Denio's came in the 1970's and 1980's with weekend vendors selling all types of merchandise. The Denio family grew over the years and many family members, children and grandchildren, worked at the auction. James Denio died of heart failure January 3, 2000. "Jim Denio never stopped working to improve himself and his business. He knew the importance of family, honesty, and hardwork. Just as importantly, he appreciated each and every vendor and employee. He realized that they all had helped to make his business a success."
