The Ames Main Street Farmers' Market is Going Virtual!

For the first time ever, the Ames Main Street Farmers’ Market is going virtual!

We are excited to offer this new option to our customers. An online market will allow all of us to continue to support our local farmers, bakers, and artisans and still get our favorite products.

As a market customer, you will need to create a new account to place orders. Your first two orders can be placed on a trial basis, after that a $25 membership fee will be added to your order. Your membership will include unlimited number of orders and will be active for one year.

We also want to let you know that there is a 0.8% Convenience Fee on all purchases. This fee, along with our membership fee, helps us cover the costs of running an online market.

As we get the online market up and running, please note there may be a few hiccups here and there. Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or suggestions! You can reach us at or 515-232-2310.

Stay tuned, we will have a lot more to share in the coming weeks!
