“Valley Junction shops”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Not as many shops as the last time we were there. Although there were some very unique ones we liked!

“Great local gem”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We cruised to Valley Junction in our classic cars and were happy to show off these cars to the many visitors to that area. We loved the variety of food offered and farmers market items available. We ate at a El Chisme and really enjoyed great food and hospitality.

“Old Train Depot Historic Cultural District”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Plan on f lunch at either Cafe Su (Chinese restaurant) or The Tavern (Italian.) Take a little time to shop at the numerous art galleries, jewelry, clothing , ("Sisters") and scrapbooking shops. "Outstamping Designs",is another wonderland of papers for homemade cards, a multitude of inks and rubber stamps..You can find personalized souvenirs for almost everyone on your list. There is an "all Iowa" products store as well. "The Theatrical/ Shop" specializes in costumes, (great gifts for the kids, grandkids and adult' trick or treating), tiaras, dance clothes ,shoes and supplies. After spending a few hours in Valley Junction,, visit The Des Moines Art Center, just a few miles east on Grand Avenue!
