With warmer weather finally arriving, it's time for a City spring tradition to begin: the Iowa City Farmers Market!

The Farmers Market begins Saturday, May 7, 2022, on the first level of the Chauncey Swan Parking Ramp. It runs from 7:30 a.m.-noon Saturdays from May through October. Due to a decline in vendor participation, there will be no Wednesday Farmers Market for the 2022 season. 

Mask-wearing will not be required to visit the market, but all visitors should respect those who do continue to wear masks due to COVID-19. 

Payment options

Credit, debit, and EBT/SNAP (Electronic Benefit Transfer/Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) cards are accepted at the Market. Shoppers intending to pay with a card should stop by the centralized information table and swipe their cards for tokens of equal value.

All eligible vendors will accept the EBT/SNAP tokens, and all vendors will accept the credit/debit card tokens. Signs indicating which tokens are accepted by each vendor are displayed at their booth. As an added benefit, those using EBT/SNAP cards to purchase tokens will have their dollars matched up to $10 through Double Up Food Bucks, Iowa’s statewide healthy food incentive program. For more information about the Double Up Food Bucks program, visit DoubleUpFoodBucks.org.

The Iowa City Farmers Market is a program of the Iowa City Parks and Recreation Department. For more information, visit icgov.org/FarmersMarket
