    You can also shop more than 70 local vendors with fresh produce, baked goods, handmade items, jewelry, cheese, honey and more underneath the pavilion in the heart of downtown.

    The market has food trucks, live music, local breweries and rotating kid’s activities. The Rockford Park District will be on site with different games for kids (and kids at heart) to try out.
