Celebrate family and friendship this Mother’s Day! It’s fast approaching, and the nicer weather reminds us to be grateful for those around us. Whether you’re having a girls’ day, taking Mom out, or just enjoying some company, here are some great ways to spend time in Ames. 

The Ames Main Street Farmer’s Market‘s opening day is May 6! Buy directly from local Iowa vendors at this amazing community event. Peruse the streets of Downtown Ames to discover cheeses, fruits, crafts, fresh flowers, and much more.

After scoring some goodies, head over to Whiskey River, a nearby watering hole for some lunch and drinks. Enjoy free parking and signature cocktails sure to wow any of your guests.  

Treat Mom, Grandma, or any of the special someones in your life to artisan jewelry courtesy of Ames Silversmithing. Their impressive collection of bracelets, pendants, earrings, and rings are great ways to show your appreciation.  

Then, create a unique candle together at Oak Lane Candle Co.‘s candle bar to commemorate Mother’s Day 2023.

Finally, enjoy some relaxation at Transform Wellness Collective with shopping and chiropractic massage. Trained specialists offer Reiki and energy healing by appointment.
