Siouxland Public Media

The Sioux City Farmers Market kicked off on Wednesday, May 5, 2021. A downpour of raid didn’t stop a stream of people from checking out produce, plants, food, and other offerings.

Siouxland Public Media's Sheila Brummer has more on this rite of spring.

The Sioux City Farmers Market continues every Wednesday and Saturday through the end of October from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. 

CDC

The Iowa Senate has passed a bill that would ban state and local governments from issuing ID cards that say whether someone got a COVID-19 vaccine. It now goes to Governor Kim Reynolds for her signature.

The bill also says businesses will be ineligible for state-funded grants and contracts if they require visitors to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19. There’s an exception for health care facilities, and employers will still be allowed to ask their employees if they’ve been vaccinated. 

Siouxland District Health

The state of Iowa added five more deaths due to complications of COVID-19 and more than 400 new cases, including 18 more in Woodbury County. More than 5,900 Iowans have died due to the illness since the start of the pandemic.

Siouxland District Health is planning to hold vaccination clinics at Sioux City’s three high schools on Wednesday.

A letter to parents from Superintendent Dr. Paul Gausman says the clinics will not be open to the public, but offered to students and staff in the district.

The vaccine is optional.

Siouxland District Health reports one more death in Woodbury County from COVID-19.   He was a man between the ages of 61 and 80 and passed away at home.  So, far seven have died in the Sioux City metro area from complications of the virus. 

Wednesday morning, the Iowa Department of Public Health reported a dozen additions deaths for a total of 219 Iowans.

There were 293 new cases for a total of just over 10,400.  There were two dozen new cases in Woodbury County. New numbers from Dakota County aren’t available because of technical difficulties.

Katelyn Brinkerhoff, from ISU Extension & Outreach (and super interns, Claire Growth and Gustavo Flores) sit down with guest host, Steve Smith to talk about a Bike and Bite event, Saturday, setting off from the Sioux City Farmers Market and touring the city in search of food, coffee and other fun things.

It's spring and we're just a few weeks away from the opening of the Sioux City Farmers Market. Market Manager Becky Kempers stops by to talk to guest host Steve Smith about everything to look forward to during the upcoming season.

Years ago Nisa Salmen fell in love with the white-chocolate raspberry mocha from a national coffee chain which set up a chain of events that led her to open a coffee shop of her own (and to start drinking real coffee.) Adrian welcomes Salmen, who just held the grand opening of that coffee shop, Hardline Coffee Co. last weekend. They discuss the burgeoning coffee culture here in Sioux City and starting a business downtown.
