The Story City Farmer’s Market will be here on Thursday, Aug. 3, from 4-7 p.m. in South Park along the grass near the parking area. If you didn’t have an opportunity to make it for the last market, come down for this one! The baked goods were amazing, the produce was incredible including some fresh sweet corn, and there was a food truck as well. Come out and check local vendors this week to see what amazing items you can get from people you may even know! The Market is growing, but the GCC is still looking for more vendors to participate and continue to “grow” the market with locally homegrown, homemade items. Please call the GCC office at 515-733-4214 or email info@storycity gcc.com if you would like to reserve a spot.
