Des Moines Legacy Foundation Has Been at Farmers Market Since Beginning


The Des Moines Legacy Foundation has been in the Des Moines Farmers Market since its beginning seven years ago.

Most notably, you will recognize the picture note card booth, manned by Council Member Carmen Scott and volunteer Susan Corey (pictured above) every Saturday during the season to raise funds.

Carmen is the city’s official photographer and has used her vast collection of photos from around the community to put together the picture note cards whose proceeds benefit the Legacy Foundation. Carmen recently commented “look for us by in market information booth and be sure to ask me for the many new cards for this season.”

Everyday our lives are enriched by area Parks, Recreation and Senior Services. The Legacy Foundation was founded to help support and preserve these activities in our community. One of its mission statements is to promote interest in and opportunities for charitable giving. Its biggest charitable fundraiser event is the annual Bayside Brunch held every year on the first Sunday in November. From these events, funds help to support activities such as Youth Scholarships, Senior Center improvements and enhancements to our parks.

Log on to the Legacy Foundations web site to see how you can get involved in this very important organization to help better our city’s neighborhoods. Board President, Clark Snure, recently said “if anyone has any interest in serving on our board, please contact me for information.” And while at the farmers market stop in a graze through the beautiful picture note cards that Carmen has put together, she can give you the history of each picture she has taken.

Remember you are now able to ride the shuttle cart between all parking lots will attending the market.

The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market runs every Saturday from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the North Marina parking lot.
