Great Country Markets

Argo Acres

We grow a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables that we sell at our farm stand in Argo Fay and at Lyons Farmers Market in Clinton, Iowa. The produce we sell is picked fresh daily!

April-June: Early in the season we have asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries plus early season greens and vegetables. These are usually sold by order.

July-November: Our farm stand opens daily in July with the start of green beans, sweet corn, and tomato harvest; and remains open through November with pumpkins, squash, gourds, and Indian corn. We also have apples, red raspberries, melons, and other seasonal vegetables. The only times we close are Wednesdays at 3:00 PM while at the farmers market and Saturday mornings. We open Saturday at 1:00. Otherwise we remain open.
