Spring means Farmer’s Market Time

Spring has FINALLY arrived and that means its about time to start going to the farmer’s market to buy fresh fruits and vegetables at great prices since the food will be in season.

One thing I absolutely love about spring and summer is all the fresh fruits and vegetables that will be sold at the farmer’s market.

In less than a month (opening in May) the farmer’s market will be open in Davenport and in Iowa City, Iowa.

Iowa City does haveĀ  a Winter’s Farmers Market open now through April 26th from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. which they do offer fresh produce, handmade crafts and jewelry, prepared foods and baked goods as well as other handcrafted items for sale.

Iowa City even offers a “Whats in Season” document that shows which types of produce are in season for that certain month. The list provides months May through October.
