Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers’ Market:

The 16th Annual Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers Market season kicks off on June 19th. Planning has been underway for this in-person, outdoor Farmers Market in the summer of 2021. Major modifications to a traditional market are necessary because of the global public health crisis. One of the largest open-air markets in the Midwest, the Cedar Rapids Downtown Farmers’ Market features numerous local Iowa vendors. From 7:30 am to noon, browse through an array from fresh produce and flowers to meats and artisan gifts.

Attendees encouraged to follow these safety and health guidelines:

  • Masks are encouraged to be worn
  • Please limit interaction with vendors by social distancing
  • One-way traffic flow will be encouraged throughout the market via signage throughout the venue as currently encouraged by public health guidance for Farmers Markets.
