Ida Area Farmers’ Market

Ida Area Farmers’ Market is a community organized market operating under the authority of Ida Grove Community Partners and the City of Ida Grove.  We offer produce, artisan chocolates, baked goods, eggs, honey, handmade soaps, lotions, and shampoos, jewelry and home decor, fresh flowers, wine, organic meats and vegetables, knitted items, painted wine glasses, honey lemonade, and stone creations.

All products sold at the Ida Area Farmers’ Market are made solely in Iowa, specifically Ida County or the adjoining counties of Cherokee, Crawford, Buena Vista, Woodbury, Monona, and Carroll.

We have an average of 12 vendors on any given Thursday, with some specialty vendors appearing once or twice a month.

Customers who purchase items from the market are given a coupon for discounts at several area businesses and a chance to win a basket of items from our vendors.

Area organizations serve food near the market at Godbersen Park each week. It is a great opportunity for the community to gather together and support the community’s worthy causes.

Ida Area Farmers’ Market is a certified market, accepting WIC and FMSNP coupons.

WIC (Women, Infants, and Children)

The WIC Program provides supplemental foods, health care referrals and nutrition education at no cost to low-income pregnant, breastfeeding and non-breastfeeding post-partum women, and to infants and children up to 5 years of age, who are found to be at nutritional risk.

Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP)

The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides low-income seniors with coupons that can be exchanged for eligible foods (fruits, vegetables, honey, and fresh-cut herbs) at farmers’ markets, roadside stands, and community-supported agriculture programs.
