TRAVERSE CITY — On Sept. 29, National Coffee Day, NoBo Mrkt will open in Traverse City. NoBo is a café, restaurant, and beverage bar.

Located in Commongrounds Cooperative on the banks of the Boardman river, NoBo Mrkt is a new collaborative food and drink project aiming to provide community, connection, and sustainable food and beverage experiences. The company said its mission is to strengthen local food markets in the Grand Traverse region by fostering a culture of support to new and evolving “foodpreneurs.”
NoBo Mrkt has been in the works for two years, championed by the Grand Traverse Foodshed Alliance and a group of local promotional food and drink partners. The space, designed with an open, casually elegant style, was completed this August, with limited food and beverage operations beginning in early September. This grand opening marks the launch of NoBo Mrkt to the wider Traverse City community.
