The Charles City Downtown Farmers Market is excited to be a part of downtown Charles City! Farmers Markets are a wonderful symbol of Iowa’s deep roots in agriculture and entrepreneurship. What better place to display this great tradition than in the heart of the community? The Charles City Downtown Farmers Market invites you to join in this tradition every Wednesday and Saturday from May through October around Central Park in Charles City.
The Market is a great place to get fresh local ingredients for your family and with the many events going on in the park it’s a great place to spend time with friends. Stay up to date on all the Markets happenings on our Facebook Page.
