Start your third day off at the Des Moines Farmers Market, checking out some of the best local produce vendors in the region. In addition to fresh tomatoes, carrots, strawberries, and more, enjoy live music from local blues, rock, and country music bands, some of the trendiest local food trucks, and the sights and smells of the beautiful Des Moines Marina. The Des Moines Farmers Market runs Saturdays and Wednesdays, May – October.
Keeping to the ‘fresh and local’ theme, your group will want to enjoy lunch at the beautiful Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar at Cedarbrook Lodge. Sitting on over 11 acres of naturally restored wetlands, this tranquil setting is perfect for a day at the spa. You might be thinking “what does a spa have to do with food?” Well, after experiencing an orange peel purifying facial, chai spice & vanilla body polish, or a hydrating honey, lemon, and eucalyptus hand and foot treatment, you should be ready for your next foodie adventure at Copperleaf Restaurant & Bar.
