NewBo City Market

Cedar Rapids' community gathering place, cultural hub, business incubator and event center

NewBo City Market, located in the vibrant heart of the New Bohemia neighborhood of Cedar Rapids, is the perfect starting point for any Cedar Rapids experience.  

“When people come here from out of town and want to experience what Cedar Rapids is, this is the first place they should come,” said Logan Shultz, director of programming and community engagement at NewBo City Market.  

As a community gathering place, cultural hub, business incubator and event center, NewBo City Market draws residents and visitors alike not only for fresh, flavorful food and locally made products, but also for a variety of art, entertainment and community events throughout the year.  

Inside the Market, eat, drink and shop your way through several unique food and retail businesses who are getting their start through the Market’s incubation process, which allows entrepreneurs to test new concepts and products in a supportive, sustainable environment. At the Market, you can get to know local businesses owners while directly supporting small business, entrepreneurship and locally-sourced foods and products.  

In addition to these semi-permanent shopkeepers, the Market also hosts events throughout the year, including concerts, movie nights, festivals, weekly ‘Meet Me at the Market’ exercise activities and pop-up farmers’ and artisans’ markets featuring local growers and creators selling produce, crafts and other uniquely Iowan items.  

Be sure to also stop by the NewBo Beer & Wine bar for a locally-crafted beverage from their wide selection of award-winning beers and wines from Iowa vintners and brewers.  

“We’re really trying to make a great economic impact in Cedar Rapids by introducing and supporting small businesses, but also trying to be that third space for people – not home and not work, but somewhere you can go and spend your time and feel like you belong,” Schultz said. 

Discover all that is happening at NewBo City Market during their open hours Thursday through Sunday.  

“It’s a really lively space,” Schultz said. “There’s always something going on."
