About Us

Welcome to – Your Gateway to the Heart of American Agriculture!

At Downtown Farmers Market, we’re passionate about celebrating the rich tapestry of farmers markets across the United States. We’re your one-stop destination for uncovering the bountiful world of locally grown produce, handcrafted goods, and the vibrant communities that thrive around these beloved gathering places. Our mission is simple: to connect you with the essence of American agriculture and the people who make it possible.

Our Story

Founded by a group of passionate food lovers and community-driven individuals, Downtown Farmers Market was born out of a shared love for fresh, seasonal, and locally sourced products. Our journey began with a single visit to a farmers market in the heart of downtown Des Moines, where we were inspired by the passion of the farmers, artisans, and shoppers who gathered to celebrate all things homegrown and homemade.

This initial spark ignited our mission to share the stories, flavors, and traditions of farmers markets from coast to coast. We embarked on a cross-country journey, visiting bustling urban markets, quaint rural gatherings, and everything in between.

Our Mission

At Downtown Farmers Market, our mission is two-fold:

  1. Celebrate Local Agriculture: We believe that farmers markets are the heart and soul of American agriculture. They provide a platform for local farmers, artisans, and entrepreneurs to showcase their talents and share their produce with the community. We’re here to shine a spotlight on these vendors, telling their stories and helping you discover the freshest, tastiest, and most unique products available in your area.
  2. Connect Communities: Farmers markets are more than just places to buy food; they’re important hubs of community interaction and connection. We’re committed to bringing you closer to these lively spaces where people from all walks of life come together to support local economies, exchange ideas, and create lasting memories.
