Start Your Business at NewBo City Market.

You have heard it again and again from your friends and family: “Did you make this?” “These are incredible!” “Have you ever thought of going into business for yourself?” So you thought about it – you read some books, took a class, ran the numbers, and now you are thinking “yeah, I could go into business for myself.” You are now an entrepreneur and on the path to starting your small business. NewBo City Market could be an important step to building your own business.

Our shopkeepers are all local entrepreneurs like you – people with the ideas, talent, and desire to build something all their own. We have spaces for you to build your own storefront inside the Market and to connect with thousands of customers. We also have temporary spaces available daily for you to set up your pop-up shop to try a new creation. Plus, NewBo works with local mentors and experts who can help you every step of the way in building your business.

NewBo Shopkeepers

Our Shopkeepers are the heart of NewBo City Market. They are a community of entrepreneurs, developing both their products and skills to scale up and launch new businesses throughout Eastern Iowa. With every successful venture comes the opportunity for new businesses to open inside the Market, so we are constantly searching for that “next big thing at NewBo.” If that is you, please contact us for more information and the spaces we have available.
