Farmers market moves back

   The Cedar Rapids Parks and Recreation Department will reopen the Eighth Avenue City Farmers Market at the city parking lot on Eighth Avenue and Second Street SE on Saturdays only beginning Aug. 9, from 7:30 a.m. to noon. The market had been moved to Noelridge Park due to downtown flooding.

    The Noelridge Farmers Market on the corner of Collins Road and Council Street NE will continue Monday through Friday from 4 to 6 p.m.

    A farmers market will no longer be held on Saturdays at Noelridge this season.

    The Eighth Avenue City Farmers Market will be closed Aug. 16, Sept. 6 and Oct. 4 when the Downtown Farmers Market is open.

    Call Teresa White, (319) 286-5699, for more information.

Market blooper

Lynn Perry, market master of the Cedar Rapids Eighth Avenue farmers market, pointed out that both the Noelridge and Eighth Avenue markets were left out of the list published in Sunday’s Gazette.

We’re still trying to figure out what happened. Both were in the original list and somehow got dropped in the editing process. It was certainly unintentional.

Information for the markets is included in the list on this blog and also appears below.

Noelridge Farmers Market in Cedar Rapids, 4 to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays

and Fridays, May 2 through Oct. 24, corner of Collins Road and Council Street NE,

contact Teresa White at (319) 286-5731.

 

City parking lot at Eighth Avenue and Second Street SE in Cedar Rapids, 4 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays; 7:30 a.m. to noon Saturdays, May 1 through Oct. 25, contact Teresa White at (319) 286-5731. Closed June 7 and 21, July 5, Aug. 2 and 16, 

Sept. 6 and Oct. 4 in deference to downtown market.

Both markets have a wonderful selection of fresh produce, live plants, soap and other handcrafted items. I’ve also found organic meat and great baked goods at the markets. Lynn notes that Cedar Rapids is unique in this area in having a farmers market every day of the week, except Sunday. (And Hiawatha has its market on Sundays!)
