Cedar Rapids is currently experiencing what many Iowans like to call "false spring," when the weather seems to do a u-turn on a day-to-day basis. Luckily, it will turn around once again this weekend and we can expect patio-perfect weather on Saturday and Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.
Where will you be enjoying your sunny weekend? Well, NewBo City Market boasts Cedar Rapids' biggest outdoor patio. Where you can enjoy all the wonderful things our Shopkeepers have to offer.
Here are three ways you can enjoy our outdoor space this weekend.
Try a local brew at NewBo Beer and Wine
The Market's indoor bar, NewBo Beer and Wine, features locally-made beers, ciders and wines. These drinks can be purchased inside and then taken anywhere in the Market Yard to be enjoyed in the sun.
Support a local business and eat a delicious lunch
From fresh wood-fired pizzas at Aroma Artisan Pizza, to sweet and authentic halo-halo at Pinoy Cafe, the Market is a perfect place to bring your family and find something everyone can enjoy.
Our Shopkeepers are all local entrepreneurs who have taken the brunt of the pandemic and a tough winter. When you shop or eat at the Market you are supporting our local economy and small businesses owned by fellow community members.
Bring a yard game and enjoy our green space
Cornhole or bags? Whatever you call it, you can bring your set to the Market Yard and play a game amongst friends with a local beer in hand and a belly full of La Reyna tacos or Pita'z hummus.
Our green space is meant to be enjoyed by those who support our mission as a nonprofit business incubator. We love to see families picnicking and playing in our yard with Shopkeeper goodies in hand.
