Mission Statement

The mission of the Iowa City Farmers Market is to provide a venue where local farmers, producers, crafters and artisans come together to provide a variety of fresh produce and related products directly to the consumer in accordance with the Iowa City Farmers Market Rules and Regulations; to provide an educational forum for consumers to learn the uses and benefits of quality, locally grown or prepared food products; to enhance the quality of life in the Iowa City area by providing a community activity which fosters social gathering and interaction. We strive to serve culturally and economically diverse populations and to increase access to fresh, locally produced, nourishing and safe foods and other products of local labor for all patrons.
