First up in our HMC8 spotlight series is our awesome venue and it’s current residents the Quad Cities Food Hub & The Front Street Brewery. What makes our upcoming holiday event one of the best shows we’ve held is the fact that we get to share a space with these two Quad City establishments.
In short our friends at the Food Hub bi-state are an initiative working to strengthen the connection between locally grown food, the farmers who raise it, and the consumers who eat it. Their local market store is located inside the Davenport Freight House and carries regional items you can’t find anywhere else in the Quad Cities. Inventory grows weekly and during Handmade City sow hours you will be able to shop the Food Hub’s local and regional natural health foods, along with unique specialty items! To learn more about the QC Food Hub visit their website: www.qcfoodhub.com and check out their Facebook Page.
Front Street Brewery has served the fine community of Davenport, Iowa for over 18 years and is the oldest brew pub in the state of Iowa. Their Tap Room is located inside the Freight House and will be serving hand-crafted beer through out Handmade City show hours. We can’t wait to see what they have in store for a holiday brew!

Our upcoming Holiday 2014 event is going to be bonkers! We have over 40 super talented vendors and will be setting up shop downtown Davenport inside the historic Freight House.
