The Iowa City Downtown Holiday Market Has Gone Online For 2020, And Shopping Local Is Now Easier Than Ever!
One of the best holiday traditions here in the Hawkeye State is heading to your local city and shopping for holiday gifts downtown! This year, though, many people are choosing to shop early and online, and the Iowa City Downtown Holiday Market has adjusted to meet these new demands. For the first time, the whole market is online! Support your favorite Iowa City small businesses right from the comfort of your own home. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Due to business changes and public health concerns, the Iowa City Downtown District has moved their annual Holiday Market to the internet!
Now, it's easier than ever to support your favorite small shops.
Some of the most popular shops in town have highlighted items that make great gifts! Prairie Kitchen Store, as always, is ready to surprise the gourmet foodie in your life.
Ten Thousand Villages offers one of a kind handmade gifts sourced from all around the globe. Check out this bicycle pizza cutter – how cool is that?
Revival is offering apothecary products perfect for a self-care basket, or stocking stuffers. Try their bath soak set, candles, or an aromatic eye pillow to give the gift of relaxation.
As always, gorgeous handcrafted works of art can be found at the Iowa Artisan's Gallery! Their selected pieces offered online this year are truly unique.
Of course, Iowa City's Haunted Bookshop is part of the fun! In addition to their usual wares, they've selected a few kids toys to highlight for the holiday market.
Browse the selection from Akar if you want to find something truly original. They've chosen to highlight paint by number sets, building toys, art cards, handmade ornaments, and more.
There are even gifts for the pets on your list! We wouldn't expect anything
other than a "Chewy Vuiton" squeaky toy from Luxe Interiors.
Of course, we can't forget Om Gifts! Their tie-dye mask kit is something that wouldn't have been on last year's lists, but it's certainly a fun craft the family can enjoy this year.
Shop local and support your favorite Iowa City small businesses at the online Downtown Iowa City Holiday Market this year, and turn the end of 2020 into a delightful holiday season for you and your loved ones.
