Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market
Visit the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market every Saturday from 10am-2pm starting June 2nd through October 28th!
Coming off its most successful seasons in history (up 30% each of the past two years), the Market has a new look this seventh season. Having out grown its old space, the market has moved down the street to the newly remodeled North end of the Des Moines MarinaThe word “Waterfront” in its name will be prominent as the location is right on the water where the guest yachts are moored. Look for the new Boardwalk Bistro where you will be able to enjoy your favorite market foods while watching all the boating activities.
Rikki Marohl, market manager, said “along with your favorite returning farmers, food and craft vendors, there will lots of new ones like Seattle Bagel and Total Europe, serving soups, hot dogs and sausages. Also new this year will be a Des Moines favorite, Auntie Irene’s serving ice cream.” The market again will feature its own wines, including last year’s favorite Waterfront White.
Don’t forget to bring your old musical instruments and donate them to the Rotary Music4Life program. They will be at the market the first three weekends in June. The program refurbishes the instruments and gives them to the Highline School students who can’t afford them. Wayne Corey, Board President, recently commented on the upcoming season “we are really excited about the move to the North end of the Marina, as it will allow us to grow and expand, provide for more conveniences for shoppers and gives us greater flexibility every Saturday thru October.”
