Going on an impromptu road trip to Des Moines. What do we do once we get there?

I found this old question
, but any new information would be helpful. I'm looking for stuff like interesting thrift, antique, used book or record stores. Hell, I'll even go to garage sales if they might have something cool. Also, any museum and restaurant recommendations would be appreciated. (Please don't recommend Sonic because I am totally already eating there. I'm practically eating there in my mind right now.) Is there a farmer's market, and is it worth stopping at this time of year? Any produce would have to make it back in the car the next day.
Oh, and is there anywhere especially good to stop between Chicago and Des Moines?
