Garden Grown For You. Paths of today's small farmers and yesterday's agricultural pioneers intersect at the weekly farmers market located at the Harrison County Historical Museum and Iowa Welcome Center. In addition to fresh, local produce, artisans and growers sell their preserves, baked goods, handmade soaps, eggs, bedding plants, aromatic herbs, goat cheese, flowers and more at this unique country market.
The market is open from 3:30 to 6 p.m. each Thursday from May 24 through October 18, 2012.
Situated in the rolling Loess Hills of western Iowa along Highway 30 between Missouri Valley and Logan, the market is convenient for rural residents and a scenic 35-minute drive from downtown Omaha.
The farmers market is located outdoors while inside the Center and its collection of historic buildings, including a schoolhouse and cabin, are thousands of local artifacts related to Harrison County's agricultural heritage and life in the beautiful Loess Hills.
A quick in-and-out shopping experience or a family-friendly afternoon of exploration and historical and agrarian lessons, this market offers an exciting new experience for the county. Admission to the Harrison County Historical Museum is free, and picnic areas are available along with a stunning hillside view of the Boyer River Valley from above.
