    Bring the kids.

    There is always great fun at the Farmers Market, be sure to stop by the patio and see what activities we have planned.

    Look at all those fresh fruits and vegetables.  With over 150 vendors at the market you can bet that if it grows locally its at the market. Brown, white, mixed or variegated farm fresh eggs are hard to beat.

    Always great entertainment at the Market. You can find Jim playing on the grass by the playground.

    Don't forget the indoor market where you will find more local and homemade goodness.

    Lutherans in Iowa Quad-Cities collect food for local pantries PDF Print E-mail

    Members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) congregations in the Iowa Quad-Cities will collect non-perishable food for local food pantries Saturday, Sept. 6, at local grocery stores.

    Volunteers will be on hand from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. to distribute brochures with a “wish list” of non-perishable groceries, including pasta, canned goods such as soup, tuna, fruit and vegetables; peanut butter; gelatin; popcorn; and pasta sauce that customers can purchase at the store and donate on their way out. Anyone may donate.

    The churches then will distribute the groceries to needy families through neighborhood Quad-City area food pantries.

    “We hope that the community will see Lutherans being Christ in the world, responding to the needs of others – in this case, those who are hungry,” said the Rev. Travis Fisher, pastor of St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church in Davenport. “It will also show that we as congregations are working together for the sake of the Gospel.”

    This is part of the “God’s Work. Our Hands” initiative of the ELCA. Nearly 10,000 congregations of the ELCA will gather to serve communities in ways that share the love of God with all of God’s people.

    Participating grocery stores are Save-A-Lot, Davenport; Fareway at 53rd and Division, Davenport; Jeff’s Supermarket, Blue Grass; and the Hy-Vee stores on Rockingham Road, West Kimberly, West Locust and East Kimberly Road. The 14 ELCA Iowa Quad City Area churches and their neighborhood pantries are
