Downtown Farmers Market reviews
I have been to a farmers market is almost every state and this was average - cute little market in downtown Des Moines, very active in the summer time and like others said - theres stuff for everyone.... more »
Too many people, too many dogs. Rotten parking situation. Fraudulent vendors buying produce at hyvee and fairway then turning around and reselling it. Fraud! Perpetrators of fraud. Lousy experience. more »
Fantastic. Great place to walk around and interact with a wide group if people. From crafts, plants, food and everything in between. Was able to sample a lot of new food and took some home. Had some great stuffed fill pickles. There was beautiful music of all types. Everyone should check it out when ever possible. Truly amazing.
Great Farmers Market, but much more selection (vendors, options) late summer than the fall. In the fall they still had good fall produce (squash, etc.) but not the variety I'd seen earlier. Fun time to get local produce, food, and ware's and get breakfast!
