An update for our customers and friends
We are excited to announce that we will kick off our 2021 outdoor season at the Alliant Energy Center! Beginning on Saturday, April 10th, the DCFM will host a weekly Saturday Market from 7am to 12 pm. This market will be a traditional farmers' market, with appropriate safety measures in place. Please read more about the announcement here. Our Wednesday Local Food Pick Ups move outdoors to the parking lot of the Exhibition Hall starting March 24th and continue weekly with no breaks in the schedule!
We understand that many will be disappointed that we are not kicking off our outdoor season back on the Capitol Square. However, please understand that it is still too risky at this time for an event of our size to operate downtown. We are confident that we will be permitted to return to the Capitol Square sometime during our 2021 outdoor season.
