FortDodge, IA (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
Providing a diverse vendor selection for visitors to purchase fresh produce, wine, cheese, jams and jellies, farm fresh eggs, baked goods, popcorn, cheesecake and more along with unique Iowa homemade items is just a small part of the popularity of this farmers market.
Several vendors have seen great success and expansion of their services. The Fort Dodge Cheesecake Lady has opened a store front in the Historic Downtown, Garden Winery purchased an abandoned school building and opened a winery and vineyard and Smucks Kringle is now selling products at area Casey Convenience Stores.
Cheryl adds, “It just makes you smile to see how a farmers market can be so beneficial to the community by strengthening the downtown and providing opportunities for vendors to grow their businesses.”
The Historic Downtown in Fort Dodge is also seeing a tremendous change with redevelopment, new businesses opening and extensive construction that includes the new crosstown connector that will better define the downtown area and provide a more direct traffic flow in the city.
The motto of “Come for Breakfast, Stay for Lunch and Take Home Dinner” is a perfect description of Market on Central that is held on the second and fourth Saturdays from June to September.
