The market is open every Thursday from June 5 to September 25 from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Once you're at the Farmers Market you can find most varieties of vegetables plus baked goods at affordable prices. The market features only Iowa grown produce that is grown in Cherokee County and the adjoining counties of Buena Vista, Clay, Ida, O'Brien, Plymouth, Sac, Sioux and Woodbury.
The market also features art and craft items that are made with skill, artistry or precision and sold at the Cherokee Area Farmers Market by the people who make the items.
You have to get there early because much of the produce is sold fast. Last week there were more vendors than there had been in previous weeks.
With most produce now coming to flourishing this week, the Farmers Market is predicted to have even more vendors.
The program is the Farmers Market Nutrition Program of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship.
Coupons have been distributed to area senior citizens by the Siouxland Agency on Aging since June 16.
Those interested in being a vendor should contact Jim Adamson at 229-9502. There is a fee of $5 per day or $30 for the season to be a vendor.
