Waterfront Farmers Market Returns June 5!
We are ramping up for the 15th year of the Des Moines Waterfront Farmer’s Market!
Market Manager Susie Novak has planned a giveaway of 1,000 “Swag Bags” (one per family) on opening day, Saturday June 5, 2021. All Des Moines businesses will have the opportunity to provide any promotional items, business coupons or trinket they’d like to be included in the bags.
The Market averages a turnout of 1,200 people per weekend, who come to enjoy fresh produce, live music and food trucks. There are many ways to get involved and share in the success; the Des Moines Farmer’s market takes up to 20 volunteers per week! For more information, or to add some swag to the bags, please contact [email protected]. Come celebrate, not only opening day, but every Saturday from June thru September!
About What’s up Des Moines
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.
Our mission this year is to highlight the special leaders and visionaries that sacrifice their time, effort and focus to help make Des Moines a special place.
We will also be visiting our local businesses and featuring the great services they provide, reminding and encouraging to shop local to help with their success.
As we recognize these leaders, our hope is to help strengthen their efforts through informing and highlighting opportunities to get involved- ask yourself how you can personally support these efforts, events, and opportunities?
Our goal is to inspire purposeful, focused effort and action to help support this unique community.
The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market is open every Saturday from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. (9-10 a.m. senior shoppers only, 10-2 p.m. open to all shoppers).
Season runs from June 5-Sept. 25 2021.
