We all agree that Des Moines is a great place to live, work, invest and play.
We also recognize that the key to creating a thriving community is through community leaders and business leaders working in partnership…
The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market continues its 2022 season on Saturday, July 16, 2022.
The market is open from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. every Saturday through Sept. 24 at the north parking lot of the Des Moines Marina.
The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market is a 501(c)(4) and was founded in 2006 as a non-profit organization bringing farmers, artisans, and the local community together around a bountiful variety of vegetables, fruit, honey, cheeses, crafts, flowers, meat and fish, ready to eat foods, education, information and entertainment.
Since its inception, the Market has been a prime gathering place for the City of Des Moines and surrounding communities.
The Market supports many food security initiatives and programs, including vendors who accept Senior and Women, Infant and Children (WIC) vouchers for fresh fruit and vegetables, EBT (food stamps) and Fresh Bucks matching programs, and King Conservation District Senior Health Eating Initiative for qualifying low-income seniors.
Sponsor and community booths provide a way for local and regional organizations to share what they offer and fundraise for school and social programs.
The market is governed by a volunteer board of directors made up of nine local citizens. The Board’s goal is to make sure the market remains a viable event, promotes Washington farms and products, and enhances of quality of life for the citizens of our community, both in the City of Des Moines and more broadly. The market is funded exclusively from sponsor and foundation donations, public and private grants, and vendor application and stall fees.
