Farmer’s Market Season is Approaching

Summer is coming and that means it is time to start supporting local farmers and artisans at your local Farmers’ Market! Starting the first week of May, both Davenport and Bettendorf will again be hosting outdoor farmers’ markets. Freight House Market located on West River Drive next to Modern Woodman Park  will return to the outdoors for the summer. The market welcomes all kinds of local produce, food trucks, and artisan creations from all around the area, there are even massage chairs for those that really wish to shed away some stress.  The Freight House market offers a great chance to eat healthy and shop through local vendors. But, shoppers aren’t the only ones to enjoy the festivities walkers, joggers, and bikers traveling on the Riverfront Trail often stop by to enjoy the wonderful food and live music.
