It's that time of year again in Cedar Rapids for fresh vegetables, cold drinks, live music, and more dogs than you can shake a leash at! The Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers' Market is one of my favorite events to attend and the first one of the year is coming up June 3rd.

As always, you can expect over 200 local Iowa vendors offering fresh produce, a variety of baked goods, as well as meats and dairy products. According to their website, the Cedar Rapids market has quickly become one of the most popular outdoor farmers' markets in the Midwest! What I like most about the Farmers' Market is sampling all of the food. Last year I had the best glass of lemonade I've ever had in my entire life! It's also very cool that you can bring your dog to this event, it's so fun to see all of the pets. I'd love to bring my cat... but I think he might be a little scared, he doesn't get out much.

If you can't make it Saturday, June 3rd from 7:30-Noon,  you can go to one of other dates listed below:
