Farmers Markets = Fresh Produce
July 09, 2009 | Peggy Martin
Did you know there are more than 212 farmers markets located in communities across the state with direct access to Iowa’s nutritious, affordable and delicious products?
To find a market in your area, as well as days and times of operation, check the Iowa Department of Agriculture’s Iowa Farmers Market Directory. It has a full listing of markets found across the state. (If you are in a another state, just Google “farmers market locations.”)
In-season vegetables for July are: beets, bok choy, cabbage, chard, cucumber, new potatoes, snap beans, summer squash, sweet corn and tomatoes.
