Buying fresh food from farmers markets is a great way to support local farmers and our local food system, especially during COVID-19. Many markets throughout central Iowa are beginning to re-open—some with updated times, locations, and safety measures to ensure shoppers and vendors stay safe. We’ve complied a list of markets throughout central Iowa and will continue to update it throughout the summer. Stay safe and happy shopping local!
