CEDAR RAPIDS – No, it’s not the band, but this Saturday’s Downtown Farmers Market “Green Day” theme reflects the environmental organizations that will be providing information during the event.
Also, watch for changes in the venue space, due to downtown construction.
As always, you can find information on more than 40 farmers markets in Eastern Iowa on the Homegrown list and here is more from the Cedar Rapids Metro Economic Alliance about the downtown market on July 20, 2013:
The next Downtown Farmers’ Market is 7:30 a.m. to noon, Sat., July 20 in downtown Cedar Rapids.
The Day Sponsor is the Eastern Iowa Airport. Stop by the airport’s booth to learn more about an Allegiant Air voucher giveaway and an upcoming Dodgeball Tournament. Airport representatives will also be handing out bags.
Saturday’s market theme will be Green Day, with representatives from several environmental organizations set for the morning in Greene Square Park.
More than 220 local Iowa vendors and street performers will be along Third and Fourth Avenues, Second, Third and Fifth Streets SE, as well as in Greene Square Park.
The venue has been adjusted slightly due to construction projects and progress made in downtown. Free parking is available in the Fourth Avenue and GTC ramps, in addition to free on-street parking. Handicap parking is free and available in the Guaranty Bank parking lot on Second Avenue SE.
