Meet Me at the Market, NewBo City Market's weekly summertime health and wellness program, has begun its 2020 season in a new way. The program has been revised to help participants connect, get fit, and most importantly stay safe while doing so.
If you find yourself missing the Meet Me at the Market of years past, here are some fun ways you can elevate your Meet Me at the Market experience and support small business this summer.
Coffee to go
Start a weekend morning off with a yummy treat in hand and a Meet Me at the Market walk.
Roasters Coffee House is currently open for carry-out, which means you can sip some delicious coffee as you stroll along the route. Their hours are Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday through Sunday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Did you know you could burn more than 300 calories on a six-mile bike ride? Why not replenish those calories with some awesome local eats?
Several Market Shopkeepers are currently offering carry-out lunch and dinner. Find a list of Shopkeepers here and call ahead to set a pickup time. Then, pickup your dinner after your route and head home to enjoy.
Take out some brews
Although NewBo Beer and Wine is not serving up brews to be enjoyed on-site, local Iowa beer and wine can be bought at the Gift Shop and be thoroughly enjoyed at home. Take home a six pack, along with your lunch or dinner, to reward yourself after your workout.
Share a memory
Meet Me at the Market has always been a program with a focus on health, wellness and socializing. The NewBo City Market wants to maintain the social aspect of this program virtually.
If you take part in a Meet Me at the Market provided activity this summer, be sure to snap a picture. Then, share that picture on social media, check-in at the Market and don't forget to use #meetmecr2020.
Sharing your participation in Meet Me at the Market could help NewBo City Market continue this free program for years to come.
