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


Another beautiful sunny day at the Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market greeted shoppers and Food Truckee’s.

And, did you see all the kids (and adults) enjoying the Hot Wheels? There’s only two more days of the market left.

If you are a home canner, now is the time to stock up on all the fresh fruits and vegetables, maybe even some second crop raspberries and strawberries.

To help with easing of your pocket book, we are having a year-end sale on the purchase of 6 bottles or more mix of the Red Blend or the Riesling. This price of $11 a bottle, is normally $15, the sale will last to the end of the season on September 24th. All proceeds go into the Market Foundation.

Food Trucks – Charlie’s Buns N Stuff, Nibbles, NOSH, Sweet Bumpas & Wicked Pies
