the Downtown Cedar Rapids Farmer’s Market will open for its 17th season on Saturday, May 28, the Cedar Rapids Metropolitan Economic Alliance (CRMEA) announced Thursday. This year’s market will feature “more than 150 vendors” and will be “located on 2nd Avenue SE, 3rd Avenue SE and 4th Avenue SE between 2nd Street SE and 5th Street SE,” according to a press release. of CRMEA.

“We are excited to have entertainment again at our farmers market! There will be magicians, street performers, face painting and balloon animals,” said Maddix Stovie, event planner for CRMEA, in the communicated.

As in previous years, the market will also help support the needs of food insecure people through the Home Run for Hunger program. The program is a partnership between the Farmer’s Market, the Hawkeye Area Community Action Program (HACAP), First Federal Credit Union and the Cedar Rapids Cores. Its volunteers collect food donations from vendors after the market closes, which HACAP then provides to the community pantries it works with in Linn and other eastern Iowa counties. Information on how to support Home Run for Hunger will be available at the Farmer’s Market Information Booth.

The Downtown Cedar Rapids Farmer’s Market will be held every other Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon until September 17.

“The highly anticipated Market After Dark is scheduled for August 27,” CRMEA said. “More details on this popular night market will be released closer to that date.”
