Des Moines Farmers MarketPosted: July 29, 2013
DT and I took the kids down to visit his grandma in Des Moines on Friday. It was a whirlwind 24 hours, but we wanted to squeeze in time for the farmer’s market Saturday morning. If you haven’t ever been, this is something to see. And do.
Court Avenue was PACKED! Food vendors, fresh produce and flowers, crafts, dogs in all shapes and sizes, live music, block upon block….downtown Des Moines is a pretty cool place.
Big Daddy’s has some great sauces to try.
Oh, hello Henry!
We couldn’t leave the state without some fresh Peaches and Cream corn (and Yukon Gold potatoes and grape tomatoes).
And at long last….I’d waited five years. DUTCH LETTER!
My first Dutch Letter was at my first Des Moines Farmers Market five years ago. It moved me. A flaky, S-shaped pastry with almond paste and cinnamon inside? YES! Back to where it all began, folks. Heaven in Iowa!
Checking out the Des Moines River:
We tried to do this group shot….well, hrm. :-\
Sam and Henry requested a big ol’ bag of kettle corn. This was basically breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
We had such a fun morning! I would be down here every Saturday if I could. Make this market part of your summer bucket list!
