Hello from Pickle Creek Herbs! We are a small family farm in SE Iowa. We grow herbs, garlic, peppers, and fruits that we then use to create artisan infused olive oils and vinegars, soaps, salves, and balms. We take the process from seed to store and make everything ourselves using our own original recipes. We want to show how amazing herbs can be when they’re grown by passionate farmers who love their plants, their community, and their Iowa soil.
We first heard about Christkindlmarket Des Moines in 2016, and the uniqueness of it jumped out and grabbed our imagination—we hadn’t seen anything like it in Iowa before, and we just knew we had to be a part of it. And then we had such a great time with the visitors, volunteers, and vendors that we kept coming back year after year. Every year was better! So of course we had to come back again this year. It won’t be the same as seeing everyone in person (which we love and will miss!), but if anyone can capture Christmas cheer and bring it to you online and curbside, it’s Christkindlmarket Des Moines.
3. What products will you be selling at CDM Curbside and why did you choose them?
To stay in the spirit of Christkindlmarket Des Moines as much as possible, we’ll be selling only our handmade artisanal products that we create using our own herbs and recipes, including infused olive oils and vinegars and herbal soaps and balms. We’ll especially be featuring holiday gift boxes and bags in traditional holiday colors.
