Saturdays from 10am to 2pm June - September


The Des Moines Waterfront Farmers Market was founded in 2006 as a non-profit organization bringing farmers, artisans, and the local community together around a bountiful variety of vegetables, fruit, honey, cheeses, crafts, flowers, meat and fish, ready to eat foods, education, information and entertainment. Since its inception, the Market has been a prime gathering place for the City of Des Moines and surrounding communities.

The Market supports many food security initiatives and programs, including vendors who accept Senior and Women, Infant and Children (WIC) vouchers for fresh fruit and vegetables, EBT (food stamps) and Fresh Bucks matching programs, and King Conservation District Senior Health Eating Initiative for qualifying low-income seniors. Sponsor and community booths provide a way for local and regional organizations to share what they offer and fundraise for school and social programs.

The market is governed by a volunteer board of directors made up of nine local citizens.  The Board’s goal is to make sure the market remains a viable event, promotes Washington farms and products, and enhances of quality of life for the citizens of our community, both in the City of Des Moines and more broadly. The market is funded exclusively from sponsor and foundation donations, public and private grants, and vendor application and stall fees.

The Market Foundation

The Market Foundation

The Des Moines Farmers Market Foundation is a 501-(c)3 non-profit organization whose sole purpose is a funding mechanism for the sustainability of the Farmers Market.  The fund is divided into two entities: the General Operating Fund for the daily operations of the market; and the Endowment Fund whose purpose is to supply funds in perpetuity.

Monies contributed to the Foundation General Operating Fund are tax deductible. This fund includes monies collected through seasonal sponsorships by businesses or individuals, donations through fundraisers, and market donation boxes at the Market.

Monies contributed to the Foundation Endowment Fund are kept intact. Only the earnings (interest) generated can be used for market operations. By making a contribution to this Fund, you give a gift to the community over and over again. These contributions are also tax deductible. Contributions can be made in cash, through your will or by designating the Des Moines Farmers Market as the beneficiary of your life insurance.

The Foundation is actively involved in helping other community service organizations such as the Des Moines Area Food Bank, Sonju Community Garden, the Legacy Foundation, and many youth-orientated groups including Mount Rainier student clubs.

The Des Moines Farmers Market Foundation is administered by the Market Board of Directors in accordance with the organization’s by-laws. Once a year the interest earned on this fund is gifted to the market's operating budget.
