Obsessed with the Downtown Farmers’ Market during the summer months? Having withdrawals already? Then you’re in luck because I have just the thing for you – Des Moines’ very own Winter Market!

A little bit about the market from their website:

“The Winter Farmers’  Market – presented by UnityPoint Health Des Moines – is a perfect opportunity to stock up for holiday meals, parties, and gift giving with more than 120 vendors. Farmers will be selling a variety of locally raised products including eggs, beef, pork, duck, turkeys, holiday hams, and a variety of late season and greenhouse produce. Shoppers can also expect to find an abundance of fresh handmade products including locally produced honey, jams, salsa, wine, cheese, noodles, breads, pies and cinnamon rolls. In addition, poinsettias, fresh cut Christmas trees, wreaths, handmade holiday ornaments and home decorations will be available.”
