Flavors of Northwest Iowa hosts local food road show

By Staff | Jul 17, 2016

ROCK RAPIDS – Farmers markets across Northwest Iowa are open for the season offering diverse selections of vegetables, fruit, flowers, herbs, eggs, honey, meat, crafts and other products.

You can find everything from heirloom varieties to high-antioxidant health foods.

Recognizing the growing interest in fresh, locally produced food, Iowa State University Extension county offices in Northwest Iowa launched Flavors of Northwest Iowa, a regional food project to build a network of support for growers and consumers.
