CEDAR RAPIDS – Offering local, organic and all-natural products, prepared foods, custom cuts of meat and bulk spices, The Fresh Market will open its doors Oct. 1 in Cedar Rapids.
The store has been remodeling the former Kmart location, 180 Collins Rd. NE, at the same time that New Pioneer Food Co-op has been renovating the former Fin & Feather, also in northeast Cedar Rapids. New Pi’s opening is scheduled before the end of this year.
Grand opening activities at The Fresh Market include chef demonstrations, food sampling and drawings for The Fresh Market gift cards. A sample-sized bag of the company’s gourmet coffee and a reusable shopping bag will be free to the first 1,000 customers.
