NewBo City Market

Every penny spent at the Market directly supports the local economy.

No visit to Cedar Rapids is complete without a stop to NewBo City Market, a nonprofit business incubator and community hub for local artisans, entrepreneurs and creatives house in a renovated manufacturing warehouse at the heart of the city’s hip and walkable New Bohemian District.

Home to local artisans, entrepreneurs, and creatives, the Market is a showcase of local talent and a one-stop shop for dining, shopping, arts and entertainment. There’s something for everyone and never a dull moment between concerts, yoga on the lawn, educational workshops, outdoor movies, bingo, trivia nights, and more.

“Everything we do, from putting on events to developing and maintaining our property, uplifts small local businesses within our community,” said Julie Parisi, Executive Director of NewBo City Market. “We are honored to be able to provide that support, as one of the very few nonprofit public markets and business incubators in the country.”

Through the Market’s business incubator program, small business owners can experiment and launch their entrepreneurial dreams. With the launch of The Hatchery program, the Market has expanded its efforts to help underserved residents and increase diversity of Shopkeepers by reducing barriers to entry and the community of tenants can bounce ideas off of each other. Graduates of the Market’s incubator can be found throughout our resilient and thriving community. 

“NewBo City Market has given me the opportunity to launch my business, meet new people, and try new things,” said Ashlee Mooney, owner of Not Anything Specific inside the Market and participant in the Hatchery program. “I feel like I have a voice here, and I get great exposure. It’s an amazing community, and a great way to get a taste of what Cedar Rapids has to offer.”

When you visit the Market, you’re championing the Market’s nonprofit mission to foster regional economic development by uplifting entrepreneurs and artists through an equitable business incubator, accessible public programming, and a community gathering space. Every penny spent at the Market directly supports the local economy.
