Des Moines Farmers Market

The Des Moines Farmers Market is a major event that is held each Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa. This is a great place to find some of the best direct-from-the-producer goods in the Midwest. In addition to a rich array of fruits and vegetables, there are flowers, wines, cheeses, baked goods and dairy products. Special programs, kids events and concerts are also a part of the Saturday morning festivities in downtown Des Moines.
