Guide to Spring Markets and Craft Shows in the Iowa City Area

Soon enough, the cold will be clearing and spring will finally be (hopefully) here to stay! After a long, cold, snowy winter I know I’m excited for some sunnier days. I’m also eager for the spring markets and craft shows in the Iowa City and larger Corridor area.

Spring markets offer the chance to spend time browsing the vendor booths and enjoying the other fun parts of these events — like grabbing lunch at a food truck, sampling wine, and listening to live music.

Brigette lives in North Liberty with her husband Brian, energetic daughter Kate (October 2014) and their two cats, Penny and Olive. Originally from the Chicago suburbs, Brigette came to Iowa City to attend the journalism school at the University of Iowa, fell in love with the area, and decided she couldn’t leave. After meeting Brian while working at the same Iowa City restaurant in college, they got married in August 2015 in the heart of downtown. She works full time in project management and as an employee of the Core Fitness Kids Club while finishing her MBA at Upper Iowa University. In her free time, she drags Kate out garage sale-ing, tries to keep up with her reading list and runs, lives for Hawkeye football season, enjoys a good meal on a patio, runs her Bachelor/Bachelorette bracket with her family and friends, and of course, chases her daughter around the pool and the park.
