The opening day of Des Moines’ Downtown Farmers’ Market has been postponed indefinitely because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The market was set to open May 2. That will be delayed until emergency restrictions imposed by Gov. Kim Reynolds to slow the virus are lifted.
Iowans are not supposed to gather in groups of more than 10, and they are encouraged to stay home at this point.
The market draws thousands of people and is one of Des Moines’ most popular spring/summer events.
