Each week, we ask Downtown Farmers’ Market shoppers: “What’s in Your Bag?” On Saturday, Aug. 6, shoppers instead shared what was in their wagon from their favorite Market vendors. Check out their purchases below!

May May at The Market

May from Ankeny was shopping at The Market today, and we stopped and asked her “What’s in Your Wagon?” So far today she has bought Asian greens and tomatoes from Thill’s Produce, as well as cucumbers, bitter eggplant, sweet potato leaves and eggplants. We gave May a reusable Market bag and you could get one too if we stop you when you’re shopping at the Market Saturdays from 7 a.m. to Noon.
