Cedar Rapids, Iowa – After two years, the Cedar Rapids Farmers Market took place in person on Saturday morning. Because of the pandemic, the market was held as a drive-thru event last year.
Thousands of people visited The Cedar Rapids Farmers Market on Saturday. They were all happy to be back downtown.
”This was a huge gut punch last year to have that loss of revenue, and then have the derecho on top of it. We’re like a lot of other businesses where we’re just eating the elephant one bite at a time. And having all my best customers back here at the market, this is awesome. Cedar Rapids is just showing up, they are so excited to get back to the market and we’re glad to be here,” says Tim Palmer, vendor at the Cedar Rapids Farmers Market.
Other markets will be held on July 3, July 17, August 7, August 21, September 4, September 18, and October 2nd.
