About Heart of Iowa

Located in the Historic Valley Junction in West Des Moines, Heart of Iowa Market Place offers opportunities to sample, share and remember Iowa with distinctly Iowa gift items and products.

As much as the products themselves, it is the experience we deliver that keeps our customers coming back and leads them to tell their friends and family about us. The Heart of Iowa is a place where customers can refresh and explore; a place reminiscent of a time when the pace was slower, the family were near and neighbors were friends.

We specialize in Iowa gift baskets, gourmet foods, souvenirs, John Deere, Iowa Hawkeye and Iowa State gifts. We are a key resource for gift items that are “All Things Iowa”.

We take great pride in designing every gift box or gift basket with personal attention to detail, creating each one to convey the special message or sentiment you wish to share. As a family owned business, we are small enough to meet our customer’s special requests, yet large enough to accommodate any company’s large corporate gift needs.

We offer shipping to U.S. recipients through UPS. Des Moines area delivery is also available.
