NewBo City Market will always strive to be a guiding force for the small local businesses that call the Market home.
What our Shopkeepers have to say:
"I can't say enough how great it is to be (at the Market) and to have support constantly... This is a really beautiful and tight-knit community. Not only the Shopkeepers and the staff but also the patrons." – Amanda Steines Roasters Coffee House
"Right when (the pandemic) started I didn't know what I was going to do... but eventually, because of the resources I was able to get, I was able to stay here and even move to a bigger space." – Blanche Vega Pinoy Cafe
In order to continue our mission, we need you to donate and become a Friend of the Market to help us support our Shopkeepers during this uncertain time.
The derecho, which devastated Cedar Rapids and surrounding communities on August 10, only furthered the negative impact that the ongoing pandemic has had on our local economy.
We hope you’ll consider donating to support our mission to lower barriers for diverse entrepreneurs and create a launch pad for startup and early-stage businesses that have a distinct focus on local products.
