Small Business Marketplace Returns to Downtown

Iowa’s West Coast Initiative and Downtown Partners are excited to announce that Small Business Marketplace is back again this year in Downtown Sioux City, Iowa. The event is designed to promote downtown businesses and invite other local businesses to set up shop for the holiday season. The marketplace will be held at Bluebird Flats this year and take place each Saturday throughout the holiday season.

Small Business Marketplace was created to encourage people to support local small businesses this holiday season with one convenient stop. It also provides an opportunity for other small businesses in the Siouxland area to experience the downtown market. The marketplace will be taking place on November 26th, December 3rd, December 10th, and December 17th. All pop-up businesses will be located at 520 Nebraska St and open from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The following businesses will be added to the downtown business list this season:

Crumb. Bakery, Sit Pretty Bakery, Epik Destinations, Circlesmith Studio, Ohana Pearls, Poppy Lights Boutique, Honeysuckle Hollow Floral Design, Siouxland Junk Removal, Knit and Crochet Works by Ricarda, and more!

“Iowa’s West Coast Initiative is very excited to help facilitate this opportunity with Downtown Partners for our small businesses in and around the Siouxland area. The vision is a two-fold approach, were making it more convenient for consumers to support small businesses during the holidays, while also trying to attract more businesses to Siouxland and the downtown area.” – Jesse Hinrichs, Entrepreneurial Community Navigator with Iowa’s West Coast Initiative. “Now more than ever people are looking to make an impact with their money and supporting local businesses is great way to do that. This is a fantastic opportunity for both the businesses and consumers and were just excited to be a part of it.”
