Shopping and Dining
Jasper County’s diverse communities offer unique shopping and dining experiences for residents and visitors.
Colfax, for example, has a historic downtown with shops and restaurants; the Colfax Spring City Commercial Historic District is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Colfax Main Street continues to make investments to promote this charming downtown.
Goldie’s Ice Cream Shoppe in Prairie City was recognized in 2009 by the Iowa Pork Producers as the home of Iowa's best breaded pork tenderloin—an incredible feat in the number one pork producing state in the country where there are strong—and differing—opinions about what makes a pork tenderloin “the best.”
Newton is home to craft breweries, pubs, and BBQ joints - everything you need to fuel up before spending the day at Iowa Speedway.
Other Jasper County communities boast of charming downtowns with local restaurants, ice cream shops, and boutiques. Exploring them and hunting for treasures is half the fun.
