Kelly Foss of the Downtown Des Moines Farmer's Market was our special guest this morning just after the 8:30 news. New this year...."Rise & Shine Market Deals"! You can get these six weekly deals by texting the word "Market" to 46986. Simply show the vendor the coupon on your phone to save! Really big now at the Farmer's Market....asparagus, strawberries and rhubarb. Of course there are lots of other goodies as well...and a lot more than just food! The Market covers 9 city blocks downdown and has 200 vendors each week, pulled from a pool of over 300 vendors...so the Market is never the same from week to week. Check out TimberRidge Farms...they raise their own beef and have some fantastic beef sticks. The Farmer's Market is open 7AM-Noon on Saturdays...free parking in the City of Des Moines parking ramps and metered street parking is free on Saturdays as well.
Wondering how much further your car will go once the "low fuel" light comes on...go to www.tankonempty.com. Plug in your vehicle and it will give you the average for your vehicle as well as the maximum and minimum experienced by other drivers.
Today is National Splurge Day and Go Fishing Day....have fun!
