The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market’s 2016 Opening Day is Saturday, June 4, from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m, with the popular ‘Food Truck-In’ featuring over 10 Trucks.
The Saturday market will run from June thru September this year in the north parking lot of the Des Moines Marina (map below).
Once again, during the months of July and August, the Market and the Arts Commission join to bring you Sunset Markets every Wednesday from 4 – 8 p.m. Patrons can shop, have dinner at the food trucks and then walk a short distance into the Beach Park for the Arts Commission’s Free Music in the Park series.
The Market and King Conservation District is also bringing back by popular demand our Healthy Eating Initiative for qualified seniors in our area. Last season the program issued over $10,000 worth of vouchers. Once individuals sign up they will receive a $10 voucher for purchase of fruits and vegetables. Also included in the program is free door to door pickup service provided every other week by the Hyde Shuttle from Senior Services of King County. Just call 206-727-6262 for pick up.
New this year at the market is another healthy eating initiative; this one is for low income families called Fresh Bucks. Come to the market, swipe your EBT card and it will double your dollars (up to $10) per person. Both these programs are good on Saturday and Wednesday markets.
The Clutter to Cash sale is back again for three days this season. June 25, July 23 and August 13th. People can rent a booth space to sell their clutter (bring your own tables) on Saturday during the Farmers Market.
Coming soon to the market will be its own cell phone App with all the latest updates posted daily.
