Second Level Features

Shopkeeper Spaces

Delta Dental Therapy Clinic

The Delta Dental Therapy Clinic will be home to the Market's first resident therapist. This individual will provide mental health services to the community right from the comfort of NewBo City Market. This therapist will also give Market Shopkeepers and staff access to mental health services at no cost thanks to the Delta Dental Foundation. Our clinic will also be home to Mount Mercy students enrolled in the Master of Arts in Marriage & Family Therapy program who will offer low-cost therapy services and free mental health public programming.  

A Family Sanctuary

The Family Sanctuary aims to provide a tranquil environment tailored for families with nursing infants, young children, and visitors seeking a sensory-reduced environment in the often-busy Market. 

Grocery Store

The ImOn Recording Studio

We're thrilled to announce a dynamic addition to the Market, set to become a resource for budding podcasters and creators alike. This space promises to elevate NewBo City Market as a creative and entrepreneurial hub through technological innovation and access.  

The CRBT Stage 

With the upcoming second level expansion, all indoor events will be relocated upstairs! This enhanced space will showcase the CRBT Stage, a specially designed acoustic performance area and indoor stage generously sponsored by Cedar Rapids Bank & Trust. Funding has also been provided by the National Endowment for the Arts to design visually stunning acoustic treatments for the walls and ceiling. We can’t wait to celebrate the arts with year-round indoor performances. 

New Bar

A New Culinary & Processing Kitchen

In the past, our kitchen space has been a versatile hub for hosting classes, meetings, and various events. With our kitchen relocating upstairs, we are excited to expand our capacity to cultivate local farmers and suppliers. Stocked with state-of-the-art equipment funded by the United States Department of Agriculture, this new location will offer producers enhanced access to processing and distribution channels, further benefiting the community food system. 

New Offices

A Huge New Boardroom

The boardroom is moving upstairs, providing increased space, enhanced amenities, and greater accessibility for public reservations every day of the week. Whether you're arranging a meeting, private event, or any other gathering, our new sound-proof boardroom is at your service. Plus, it's perfect for booking private chef tastings with Market Shopkeepers and seamlessly connects to the upstairs bar and balcony, ideal for that stylish birthday party you've been dreaming of. 


NewBo Bar Upstairs

Alongside the renovation and relocation of our downstairs bar, we're excited to introduce an additional bar on our second level. This new addition is strategically designed to accommodate increased foot traffic and ensure ample refreshment options for our events and visitors. 

Two Balconies and a Coworking Space!

We're incorporating balconies overlooking the Market Yard, offering extra seating and a fresh perspective to enjoy the neighborhood's beauty. Picture yourself sipping a Market Lager while soaking in the music of Rock the Block. These balconies are destined to be the best seats in the house!
