More About Freight House Farmers Market

The Freight House Farmers Market is a nonprofit organization operating a year-round farmers market out of the historic Freight House building on the riverfront in Davenport.

The story behind the Freight House Farmers Market is strong. The history of products being brought to market by rail into the freight house station is something they continue to remind the community of.

Our market continues the tradition by providing a direct connection to more than 2000 vendors with roots in Iowa and Illinois, including farms, nurseries, bakeries, meat and seafood providers, cheese makers and specialty food producers.

They are also proud to share their values:

Our core values include:

Local: we value home-grown products and services.

Nature: we strive to live as good stewards of the environment.

Entrepreneurism: we encourage the development of small business.

Networking: we connect each other and the community.

Community: we are in, of, by and for the Quad Cities.

Essential Winter Emergency Kit Items

Winter season in the Quad Cities means cold temperatures, heavy snow, and slick roads. Hopefully, you won't ever need to tap into your winter emergency kit, but it's better to have one in your car than to be unprepared. Make sure you have these essential items in your car before winter arrives in the Quad Cities.
