I have been to a farmers market is almost every state and this was average - cute little market in downtown Des Moines, very active in the summer time and like others said - theres stuff for everyone to do. Vendors and prices were okay - if you're in Iowa and are not sure what to do over the weekend, this might be a good couples activity.

Too many people, too many dogs. Rotten parking situation. Fraudulent vendors buying produce at hyvee and fairway then turning around and reselling it. Fraud! Perpetrators of fraud. Lousy experience.

The downtown famers market is literally a smorgasbord of delightful temptations. There is something here for everyone. It's great for couples, families and even pet friendly. The long lines at some vendors is a tip that something really good is happening there!

We have been coming to this farmers market for years - and I remember how Jaw-dropping it was the first time I went! It’s huge and so much fun! Everything you can imagine and more - all the farm fresh fruits and vegetables you can imagine, home baked goodies like fruit tarts, huge cinnamon rolls, cakes, and cookies. Honey, salsas, wine, crafts vendors, flowers and plants, live music, doesn’t town bars and restaurants, and don’t forget all the breakfast food trucks! Popcorn, coffee stands, balloon animals, ethnic foods, spices, jellies... so much of everything! You have to experience this!

I shop the veggie stands mostly, but usually find a variety of stands to choose fruits and other tasty things to nosh on while shopping. Lots of people. I love my dog but wish people would leave theirs home , unless a service dog, as streets are very crowded without maneuvering leashes.

I do think name should be dog parade.
It is way too crowded for everyone to bring their dog. Just not the place.
