Set against the backdrop of the Olympics and the Puget Sound, Des Moines Farmers Market is a must-see destination for buying local. Located in the close-knit Marina District of Des Moines, WA, the Des Moines Farmer’s Market offers fresh and tasty seasonal crops direct from the growers, an appetizing array of food vendors, a veritable collection of local crafts people, and toe-tapping live musical offerings. Special events like Clutter to Cash, Kids Day, Safety Day, Health and Fitness Day, and Food Truck-Ins add to the diversity of our Farmers Market. On any given Saturday afternoon June – September or Wednesday night July-August, people from within Des Moines or visitors from out of town, gather together to buy a variety of fruits and vegetables not found in grocery stores, visit with friends and neighbors in a lively environment, enjoy lunch or dinner on the lush lawn overlooking the Marina, and experience concerts from local blues, rock, and country music bands. Situated right next to the fishing pier, beach, and walking trails, our Market is a special experience for children, couples, and friends.
