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.
