We don't just believe in teamwork...we believe in unity.
UnityPoint Health - Des Moines understands that working together, we can do more and be more. This year we are working together with the Downtown Des Moines Farmers' Market to help spread the spirit of well-being through health and enjoyment. We'll be on-site every Saturday to offer special programs and activities that focus on living well, eating healthy, child safety, and weight loss. We will be located at our blue tent on the corner of 3rd & Court.
With over 200 vendors and an average of 20,000 visitors on any given Saturday, it can be difficult to decide what to do, what to eat, and where to go. We'll be sharing healthy recipes weekly that feature fresh, seasonal ingredients that you can buy locally at The Market as well as other "hidden gems" that you can find at the Downtown Farmers' Market.
In the spirit of summer and Des Moines, come be a part of the celebration of our local farmers and artists, and make sure to stop by our tent to learn more about having a healthy lifestyle that can start with eating fresh, local food! We look forward to meeting you!
