A little over twenty minutes north of Conger is East Village, a popular little neighborhood in Des Moines. In East Village, there’s always something for you and Fido to get into! If you’re looking to chow down on some delicious food, try Scenic Route Bakery. This bakery serves up delicious classic deli fare, such as soups and sandwiches. If the weather’s nice, you can sit on the patio with Fido. Once you’re done eating, make sure you check out the farmers’ market. Open on most Saturdays, you can buy fresh produce, support the local economy, and have fun with your pooch all at once! Make sure to bring along a leash and some baggies.
