The Drive-thru Farmers’ Market is held each Friday from 4:00 PM – 7:00 PM. Drive through the grounds to see each vendor.

We work with the Farm Progress Show to establish building covenants and restrictions so that biennial vendors for the Farm Progress Show can put up permanent structures that we as the CIE can utilize year round. The 2020 show has been cancelled and will return to Boone at Central Iowa Expo August 30- September 1, 2022!
