I will be traveling from Oakland, CA to Des Moines this summer (late June) with my boyfriend, a Des Moines native. I'm addicted to farmers' markets--which are spectacular in the Bay Area--and am really looking forward to checking out the downtown Saturday market.
I'm wondering if anyone out there has special recommendations for goodies at the market. I'm especially interested in regional specialties, but would also love to know who has the best peaches, corn, etc. Heirloom varieties are a plus. Any info, 'hounds?
