Help support local, small businesses

By Sierra Ann, Editor and Publisher of Macaroni Kid Davenport - Bettendorf, IA May 17, 2021

One of my family's favorite things to do in the summer is to check out local farmers markets. The sweet smell of fresh produce, the beautifully handcrafted arts and the echoing music of live bands are the perfect way to spend your morning or evening in Davenport-Bettendorf. As Macaroni Kid Davenport-Bettendorf's mission of supplying hyper-local content and events to families in the Quad Cities, below is a list of farmers markets in our area. If you can't make it to one of these awesome locations, check out the QC Farmers Market online
