CEDAR RAPIDS– The area’s first regional year-round market is looking for unique vendors ready to make the NewBo City Market their year-round home. Those wishing to lease a permanent space in the market have until May 31 to apply.
Kurt Friese, director of healthy food and advocacy, is leading the search. “We are looking for local farmers and entrepreneurs who can supply produce year round, or run a small butcher shop, or serve prepared foods, coffee, cheese, baked goods, flowers, etc. At its heart, the market is an effort to bring the best of Iowa food to the public.”
