Downtown Farmers Markets return

The Cedar Rapids Downtown District announced today that the Downtown Farmers’ Markets will be back downtown beginning Saturday, August 2, from 7:30AM-noon. Location of the market will include Greene Square Park and surrounding areas. The Downtown District received confirmation from Police, Fire, Health Inspectors, and City officials that this location has been declared a safe and appropriate space following flood cleanup.  This is where the remaining downtown markets will take place this year. Parking ramps are clean, available, and will be free to market patrons.

 

Sponsors for the August 2nd market will include Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust, the Eastern Iowa Airport, and the Cedar Rapids Public Library Foundation. Markets will include main stage entertainment, interactive family activities, and cooking demonstrations, in addition to the 148 local Iowa vendors. The return of this market is one more piece to the Rebuild Downtown campaign – declaring the commitment so many businesses, organizations, and individuals throughout the community have expressed in rebuilding a downtown better than ever following the historic June flooding.

 

The Downtown District is contracting all market vendors, sponsors and entertainment to confirm the news. If you are a part of the downtown farmers markets and have any questions, contact Events Director Jill Wilkins at 398-0449.  For additional market information visit www.rebuilddowntowncr.org or see the Farmers Market tab on this blog.
