Des Moines Saturday Market

The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market was formed in 2006 as a non-profit entity, unique among the local farmers markets by requiring all of its farmers to meet a basic set of environmental stewardship principles that ensure their farming practices protect the environment while sustaining the long term viability of farmland. These practices include protecting water quality, using natural methods of pest control, preventing soil loss, conserving energy, using water conservation measures, protecting fish and wildlife habitat and enhancing genetic diversity.

The market provides to the community of Des Moines and surrounding areas a bountiful variety of vegetables, fruit, honey, cheeses, crafts, flowers, meat and fish, ready to eat foods, education, information and entertainment.

Weather permitting, we will be there tomorrow!
