Farmers’ Markets are thriving in Iowa. A 2009 study showed a 92% increase in farmers’ market activities over the previous five years, resulting in over $71 million of direct and indirect economic impact. With over 200 active markets, Iowa boasts the greatest number of markets per capita in the nation. Farmers’ Markets create opportunities for entrepreneurs and provide outlets for inventive, hard-working people to sell their goods. The vitality, energy and creativity fostered by our market is good for our economy. Connecting farm businesses directly to consumers eliminates the middle-man and brings you the freshest goods at the best price. Thank you for shopping at the market and helping our local economy grow.
