The 2017 Farmers Market, sponsored by the Vinton Parks and Recreation Dept, at the Vinton Depot every Thursday night of the summer, begins June 1.

The warming temperatures, blossoming flowers and the budding of trees tells us that spring is here!

Before long, delicious farm-fresh produce will be lining our tables and filling our bellies throughout the summer.

One of the easiest ways to find local farm-to-table vegetables, fruits, jams and honey is to visit our weekly Vinton Farmers Market on Thursdays from 5-7 PM at the Vinton Railroad Depot (612 2nd Ave).

Also available will be an abundant supply of incredible handicrafts, tasty baked goods, and hot sandwiches off the grill.

The Vinton Farmers Market gets underway on June 1st and every week will feature a fun theme to engage all participants.

If you would like more information or have an interest in becoming a vendor, please call Brad at the Vinton Parks & Recreation Department at 319-472-4164.

See you at the depot!
