Eight markets are located in Black Hawk County. Vendors offer fresh produce, plants, baked goods, jewelry, arts and crafts, honey and soaps and personal care products - all locally grown or produced.
Farmers markets in Black Hawk County will be open in 2020. Due the spread of COVID-19, restrictions will be in place.
