The market, which operates out of the historic Freight House Market Place on the beautiful Mississippi Riverfront located in Downtown Davenport, Iowa. The year-round market operates on Wednesdays from 4 pm - 8 pm, Saturdays from 8 am - 1 pm, and Sundays from 10 am - 2 pm. The market is a rain or shine event that continues through the end of October. Winter hours begin November 1st. The Freight House Farmers’ Market presents regional producers from many counties across Iowa and Illinois. Those producers offer locally produced fresh fruit, vegetables, eggs, meat, cheese, herbs, flowers, fibers, plants, honey, wine, hand-crafted items, delicious ready-to-eat foods, and more. The Freight House Farmers' Market supports nearly 200 farmers, crafters, and artisan food entrepreneurs. In addition to shopping for fresh produce, meats and more, visitors may take in some live entertainment and enjoy the atmosphere, meeting old friends, and making new ones. Farmers’ markets are an integral part of the urban-farm linkage and have continued to rise in popularity, mostly due to the growing consumer interest in obtaining fresh products directly from the farmer or producer.
