Iowa Farmers Markets – There’s an App for that!

Whether you’re gearing up for summer vacation or planning a weekend to visit family on the other side of the state, the Iowa Farmers Market app can help you find a local farmers market no matter where you go! With information on more than 230 farmers markets in the state of Iowa, the app can search for local markets using your GPS location or by entering a city or zip code.

The app also provides information on vendors, hours and location, as well as contact information for the market manager. Once you’ve visited the market, you can leave your photos or reviews for others to see.

Farmers Markets are growing in popularity as Iowans are continually demanding fresh, local produce. Need another reason to frequent the farmers market? It’s great for the economy—The Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship has shown that in 2009 alone, farmers markets had a $71 million impact on the Iowa economy. Amazing!
