We are excited to announce that we will now be open outdoors thru Saturday, November 21st! The DCFM will operate both its Wednesday and Saturday Local Food Pick Ups and Saturday Walk-Up Farmers’ Market on Willow Island at the Alliant Energy Center thru November 21st. Previously, the outdoor season was scheduled to end on November 4th, but it has been extended! Check out the full details here on our Super Fresh blog.
We plan to continue to offer opportunities for farmers and customers to connect directly throughout the winter months. More details will be forthcoming.
How to purchase from our farmers
There are currently 2 primary ways you can purchase directly from our farmers at this time.
- Pre-order for our Wednesday Local Food Pick-ups at Willow Island thru November 18th! Pre-order and drive-thru for the safest and quickest market experience.
- Shop at our Saturday Market at Willow Island thru November 21st! Patrons can pre-order and drive-thru during the designated drive-thru hours. Patrons can also pre-order their favorites, pick-up on foot during the walk-up market, and shop spontaneously for local produce and products from approximately 60 total farmers, bakers, and cheesemakers.
