Cultivate Hope Market

‘Tis the season to decorate with mums!

Support the urban farm this fall by purchasing your mums and pie pumpkins at the Cultivate Hope Markets, while supplies last. Mums are $20 per pot, and pie pumpkins are $4 each.

The mums were carefully selected so the buds aren’t quite open yet, or just starting to bloom, allowing you to enjoy maximum bloom time at home. They are available in various shades of yellow and purple, perfect for the fall season.

Pie pumpkins are great for baking and cooking! They’re smaller than carving pumpkins with a better texture that is perfect for pies and other delicious fall treats.

Purchase mums and pumpkins at the Cultivate Hope Market, Thursdays from 4-7 pm at 437 G Ave. NW in Cedar Rapids.


Cultivate Hope Market’s 2021 season will run from May 13-October 7 from 4-7 pm on Thursday nights.


At Cultivate Hope Market, we provide fresh, locally-grown produce  from the Cultivate Hope Urban Farm, grown without pesticides. It’s also a place to gather with neighbors and family, learn something new, and nourish your body through movement and exercise.


Additionally, produce is sold at half price for income qualified households through our Farm Fresh Friends program – please click here to apply. SNAP/EBT and WIC are also accepted.
