GROWING OPERATION: Hoop Houses Help Farmers
Farmers’ Market season is almost here. The Downtown Des Moines Farmers’ Market opens Saturday, May 5. You'll find more produce at markets earlier in the season and even in the winter thanks to a technique popping up on more Iowa farms. Sally Gran farms 15 acres near Nevada with Chris Corbin. He says laughing, "We're not married." The two started TableTop Farms with their respective spouses last year and bring about thirty varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs to market. Gran says, "People right now are becoming really interested in healthy greens."
