Iowa City Farmers Market

The Iowa City Farmers Market is managed by the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department. It is an open-air market held in the Chauncey Swan parking ramp, Chauncey Swan Park, and on E. Washington St. in downtown Iowa City from May through October. We strive to serve culturally and economically diverse populations by providing access to fresh, locally produced products.

Returning Vendors

New Vendors

The 2021 market will feature some new and returning vendors. There are still opportunities to become a new 2021 season vendor on Wednesdays, Saturdays, or both. If you or someone you know is interested in selling locally grown, home-made, or artisan products at the Iowa City Farmers Market, please review the 2021 Farmers Market Rules and Regulations to see if you qualify.

This opportunity is for the 2021 season and does not guarantee a vendor space during the 2022 season. Farmers with fresh locally grown produce will get priority, however, there are still opportunities for other types of vendors. There is no fee at the time of registration. New vendors that have reviewed the 2021 Vendor Handbook and feel confident that they qualify to be an Iowa City Farmers Market vendor can register at www.managemymarket.com.
