ABOUT THE FOUNDRY

The Foundry at Valley Junction, an 1890’s railcar barn and iron Foundry, is reclaimed as a distillery, food + beverage hall, commissary kitchen, and place to connect!

Designed to create a one-of-a-kind experience, the Foundry is comprised of an eclectic mix of vendors and seeks to highlight the strength of the Greater Des Moines’ craft and maker culture. We hope to serve as a place that inspires creativity and collaboration within the community.
