Veenstra family supplies fresh vegetables, fruits to Pella Farmers Market

Searsboro farmer Joel Veenstra enjoys a hands-on connection with the land and shares his fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers with central Iowans at the Pella Farmers Market each season. Veenstra began his agricultural adventure selling shares in a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) venture; now he’s expanded operations to include a presence at the Farmers Market.

Customers will find peppers, cauliflower, tomatoes, broccoli from the garden and orchard-fresh fruits like peaches, apples and pears. Veenstra also offers fresh flowers and hanging baskets. His children have experienced fresh food production on the farm and have even assisted at the market.

“Farmers Market clientele are upbeat people interesting in gaining knowledge about the produce and the producer,” says Veenstra.

The Pella Farmers Market is held Thursdays from 3 – 6 p.m., May through October, at the First Reformed Church. Call for information: 641-628-4581.
