The Horticulture and Farmers Market Bureau of the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship maintains listings of over two-hundred farmers markets throughout the state of Iowa.

The Farmers Market Coalition  maintains a Resource Library for farmers, managers of farmers market, market researchers, and organizations which sponsor or are looking to start farmers markets.  The Coalition’s database of resources “were developed by a wide spectrum of organizations, agencies and academic institutions” and it recognizes “the spirit of sharing” which allows it to make the resources available in one searchable portal.
