Dubuque's first farmer's market of the season

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Dubuque Farmer's Market is back again. Saturday was the first market of the season.

This year, there are 40 new vendors selling local produce and products.

There are also a number of area non-profits with booths, like the Fountain of Youth Program and the Dubuque Rescue Mission.

"It's a great place to get fresh, local fruits and vegetables, as well as honey. You an get a lot of plants down here this early in the season, lots of flowers, and also a lot of prepared foods," said Carolyn Scherf, Market Money Booth worker. 

The Farmer's Market takes part in the Double Up Food Bucks Program. For every $10 spent on an EBT card, another $10 is given to spend on produce. 

It is held every Saturday outside of Dubuque's city hall from 7 a.m. till 12 p.m.
