CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

NewBo City Market is expanding.

The market is adding 8-12 new merchant vendor positions to the north end of the building.

Until now, that area was used for special events and guest vendors.

The market's executive director says there has been an increase in demand for more retail and food offerings.

The new vendors will come in early 2015.

NewBo City Market is partnering with the Small Business Development Center and the City of Cedar Rapids in this expansion.

The Market is accepting applications for open spots now. The new vendors will be announced in early February.

A grand opening event is tentatively scheduled for March 5. 

NewBo City Market opened in October 2012 in the New Bohemia neighborhood of Cedar Rapids, which was heavily damaged by the floods of 2008.
