Vendor Information Guide
The main products at the Downtown Farmers' Market are Iowa-grown and Iowa-produced food products. As it continues to grow, The Market has become more attractive to vendors who sell various other products. We are committed to choosing a product mix that is attractive to customers, meanwhile keeping the balance of our Iowa farmers’ market intact. Due to COVID-19 limitations and restrictions, the 2021 Downtown Farmers’ Market is focused solely on connecting customers to local fresh produce and farm and artisan packaged food and therefore limiting vendor participation to current vendors in the following categories: farmers, food producers, value added farm products, farm plants.
To view our Vendor Information Guide that would apply in a "typical" Market season, see the Vendor Information Guide.
By including locally produced produce, eggs, beef, poultry, lamb, goat, baked goods, dairy, wine, jams, salsas, cut flowers, perennials and bedding plants among other Iowa farm-produced and value-added products, The Market gives priority to products that are produced in Iowa and sold directly by the producer/grower; however, this does not guarantee acceptance. In a typical year, recruitment of high-quality products, such as prepared food, artwork, crafts and jewelry is encouraged for The Market, however availability is limited.
