Farmers market roundup

In Des Moines, we love  a good farmers market. The downtown market is a favorite (26,000 people showed up for opening day!), but you can buy fresh produce any day of the week at these local markets across the city. I can’t wait to check out the Ingersoll Market when it opens in June.

What’s your favorite thing to eat/buy at the farmers market?
