200 plus Iowa markets to take part in National Farmers Market Week

Posted: Updated:
Next week is National Farmers Market Week, running from August 2 to August 8.
 
More than 220 farmers markets in Iowa will be taking part. Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey is encouraging Iowans to take advantage of the fresh fruits and vegetables available at farmers markets.
 
"National Farmers Market Week, and every week, is a great time to visit your local farmers market to support the vendors who are there and enjoy some of the great food grown in this state," Northey said.


Northey also encourages Iowans to use the Iowa Farmers Market app for smartphones. The free app can help people find farmers markets in their area, as users can search for specific farmers markets by city or zip code. Once located, one can find hours of the market, a list of vendors and also share and upload photos to share with others.
