Wanolitto’s Musings for this Saturday’s Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market


Boy, did you see all the families and kids having a great time on their day? It was another sunny day and close to 5,000 people enjoyed all the activities and food trucks. Our hats go off to the Police and Fire Departments for reaching out to the community with their programs.

This is your chance to show your pride in the Waterland City. Help make the city look better and after the job, come to the market for lunch and relax on the Boardwalk.

Look for sponsor BECU. They are a not-for-profit credit union committed to making your financial well-being a priority. Check out their information booth whether you are looking for a savings plan, financing, or business services, they offer a complete range of accounts with better rates and fewer fees than you’ll find at traditional big banks.

Also stop by the Edward Jones booth and chat with Mike Wilcox, longtime sponsor, about your financial needs.
