As the Downtown Farmers’ Market has grown, it has become more attractive to vendors who sell various products. We are committed to choosing a product mix that is attractive to our customer, meanwhile keeping the balance of The Market intact. This includes locally produced produce, eggs, beef, poultry, lamb, goat, baked goods, dairy, wine, jams, salsas, cut flowers, perennials, and bedding plants among other Iowa farm produced and value added products. We put a premium on products that are produced in Iowa and sold directly by the producer/grower; however this does not guarantee acceptance. While we recruit and encourage other high quality products, such as prepared food, artwork, crafts, and jewelry, we limit its availability at The Market.

It’s important to note that applicants are accepted based on the products they apply to sell. Due to our commitment to balancing product mix, as noted above, some categories are closed for application. Closed categories will not be open for application for current vendors and new applicants. Applications submitted for closed categories will not be reviewed and the application fee will not be refunded, so please be sure to review the Open/Closed category information (see Vendor Information Guide), which was updated prior to the Annual Application process.
