College Hill Farmers Market Vendor Spotlight

Yellow Table Farm – Tripoli, Iowa

Eric and Courtney Jensen

Eric & Courtney Jensen own Yellow Table Farm in Tripoli. They sell fresh produce, eggs, and lamb. They got started by growing small gardens in the backyard.  The gardens kept getting bigger until they found an acreage for sale.  They jumped in with both feet and started learning and growing as they went along! This last year they installed a greenhouse which means more produce and earlier in the season! What do they like to do when they are not at the farmers market or working on the farm? Bicycling, shooting bow, hiking, and enjoying family time.

Bowls of Love

Bowls of Love Christy Stolz & Abigail Stolz (Mother & Daughter) own Bowls of Love! Three years into business they are happy to be joining the market! Abi had the idea while at UNI to start a small Farmers Market business. Her goal was to provide an avenue to assist small charities in our community. Abi bought herself a fancy blender, started working on recipes & applied to the CF Farmers Market. In the first two years of business, Bowls of Love has grown into a food truck & donated $5,500 to local charities.

During the first College Hill Farmer’s Market, with speakers, La Calle, face painting, activity booths, and cornhole games! Watch artists paint the barrels live, along all of College Hill.

Homeowners will bid on the painted rain barrels during the week of College Hill Arts Festival (June 11th – June 17th), and the proceeds will go towards paying for barrels, converter kits, and helping AmeriCorps fund more conservation programming.
