Bring your kids, your friends, and a stray neighbor or two! We have a variety of vendors and a plethora of delicious items from which to choose. Stock the cupboards and fill the pantry, it is time for the Mt. Vernon Winter Farmers Market!
Farm eggs, fresh roasted coffee and coffee beans, apples, wines, pork and lamb, and an abundance of delicious, seasonal produce! Everything at our market is produced and raised here in Iowa, by the vendor selling directly to you! We are proud to be local!
Since the late nineteenth century, African Americans have participated in a variety of sports and contributed in profound ways to Iowa’s sporting culture. African Americans experienced severe discrimination in sports as in other activities, but fought long and hard to overcome racism.
In Iowa, they frequently used achievement in sports as a way to come together as a community. These countless narratives both on and off the court, field, and ring, remind us of the broader struggle for civil rights in America.
Presented by the African American Museum of Iowa
