Everything that is for sale is grown or produced by the person selling it. That makes this market unique. There are plenty of opportunities for people to discuss how the product was grown or made. This exchange draws the community together and makes it a better place to live. Nearly 20 area farmers sell home grown produce, but the market is more than just produce! Live music, coffee and sweets draw the Siouxland community to the Marke
