Cedar Falls Farmer's Market

Little else says Spring like an early morning visit to the farmer’s market for farm-fresh produce, delicious baked goods, fresh-cut flower arrangements, plants and crafts made by local artisans. There really is something for everyone at our local markets.

The largest of our markets is the Cedar Falls Farmer’s Market located at 3rd and Clay Streets in Cedar Falls. It’s nestled under mature trees and between our local historical society and Overman Park. Not only will you find produce, plants, baked goods and crafts, this farmer’s market also has food and coffee vendors, a monthly customer appreciation day and live entertainment throughout the summer. Bike or drive to the market, grab a cup of coffee (and breakfast), stroll the streets, purchase your week’s produce and picnic in the park.
They’re open every Saturday, May through October, from 8:30 am until Noon.

Also in Cedar Falls is the College Hill Farmer’s Market at West 22nd Street between College and Olive Streets. Visit every Wednesday from 4 pm until 6 pm, May 17 through October, for a variety of locally grown produce, locally roasted coffee, honey, hand-crafted items and baked goods. You’ll love The Hill!
