Post Des Moines Farmer's Market

I heard on the noon news yesterday that the Des Moines Farmer's Market starts this Saturday.

I'm not quite sure where it's at though.

Oct 31,

Newton Farmers Market ends Sept 15, I was there last Tuesday and while I want to support the local farmers/ the prices were kinda high as compaired to the local grocery store. I'm just not going to pay 2x the price for vegatables or $8-$12 for a pie, and turn the music down I'd like to be able to talk to people without shouting.

What hours is the Des Moines Farmer's Market?

I imagine it's too late this morning to get down there from Nevada and find a place to park...

What are the "must sees" at the Des Moines Farmer's Market? Any exhibits, vendors, or food that a first-timer needs to experience?

He would even drawing something based upon your request. He cleans house ($$$$). He was even turning down tips.

There was also a retired guy from Remsen, IA (?) that did beautiful stone carvings and they were quite reasonably priced. Pieces similar to:
