Say Hello to Produce Vendors in July at The Market
In 2022, the Downtown Farmers’ Market welcomes new and beloved vendors to Downtown Des Moines (DSM). During your next visit to The Market, Say Hello to the featured July vendors below.
Farming in Iowa can be challenging, and this year is no exception. We talked to some of our vendors to see how the growing season is going and what you can expect to find at The Market this month. Prairie Lake Acres in Pella said the cold weather earlier this spring has them about two weeks behind but that the zucchini, tomatoes and peppers will be ready soon. Sue’s Garden has also had a slower start to the season. Their customers can expect to see Asian greens, summer squash and zucchini at their booth in July. At Angie’s Market you’ll be able to find greens, kale and carrots throughout the month and they hope to have broccoli, cabbage and green beans by the end of the month. Grade A Gardens will soon have strawberries, new potatoes and peas for sale. Windy Hill Homestead in Lacona will continue to have radishes, lettuce and bok choy, turnips should be ready later in the month.
