  • Overview

    In response to COVID-19, Global Greens Farmers’ Market will be following all of the guidelines issued by Governor Reynolds. Farmers will be spread out farther apart, customers will walk through vendors using “one-way” walking lanes, and farmers and customers will stay farther apart from each other. The market will continue to have the same great produce and friendly farmers while remaining a safe location to purchase fresh produce in an outdoor environment.

    Lutheran Services in Iowa’s Global Greens is an incubator program that assists former refugee farmers in starting small vegetable farms. Our produce is Certified Naturally Grown. We accept cash, credit cards, SNAP/EBT, and WIC and Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks. We also support Double Up Food Bucks! Use your SNAP EBT card when you visit the market and we will match what you spend up to $10. Bulk purchases are eligible for an even higher match. Spend $50 - get $50 of produce free! Spend $100 – get $100 of produce free!
