Newbo City Market in Cedar Rapids has announced plans for a big expansion project that will bring several new features to the popular market.

CBS2 reports that Newbo City Market announced plans for the major expansion over the weekend at a campaign kickoff event. And when we say that they're planning a whole new 'level' of attractions, they mean it! Part of the new expansion project will be a second level to the market.


CBS2 reports that the second level expansion would be built on the north side of the building opposite of the business incubator. The new area would include an indoor stage and events area, a bar, a boardroom, a culinary and processing kitchen, a family sanctuary, a therapy office, and a podcast studio. There are also plans to make changes to the first floor at Newbo. CBS2 reports change include plans for a grocery store, and new shop space that would be open 7 days a week.

Newbo is asking for the public's help in funding the proposed expansion project. CBS2 reports that you can donate to the 'Next Level Local' campaign by clicking HERE.
