I would recommend it for event rental. The facility can provide a large tastefully decorated area for special events such as wedding receptions and fun raising dinners. I like the location in the downtown area that is rapidly becoming the art quarter of Rockford. More...

This is always a fun event especially during nice summer Friday nights. It is a great time for the family with music and tons of food options. There are a lot of vendors to check out with different items from vegetables to home decorations for sale. This is a must do at least once during the summer! More...

Rockford City Market is a family friendly outdoor event on Friday nights during the summer. They have added a new indoor space, but I have yet to visit it. There is live music, a variety of food trucks, food tents, beer tents. There are also a bunch of local craft vendors and our local 815 t-shirt shop, jewelry, clothing, baked goods, beef jerky, crepes, cheese, gorgeous flowers, wood fired pizza, hotdogs, pulled pork & brisket nachos, burgers, fresh fruits and vegetables. You name it, it's probably there! It's crowded, but the lines move quickly. The space is right along the Rock River and it's a great way to connect with old friends. More...

There's not much to say about "Rockford City Market" because I believe if this Stateline area in Rockford be safe and secure getting big name local bands, small business and great food all being on one accord, Including "Friday Night Flix" Rockford City Market will be around for a long time to come. I hope in the future someday we will have a Rockford Festival on Labor Day Weekend with affordable pricing with Rockford Local Bands and finally, A professional basketball team since "The Rockford Lightning." Wouldn't that be something special in our Stateline area in Rockford, Illinois.� More...

More fresh produce please. I went down yesterday, specifically looking for good tomatoes. Bought a lot of things, but no tomatoes. Only one vendor had them, and I didn't like the looks of them. I like the food booth selections. Music is always good. And everyone always seems happy and friendly, it's a great vibe. More...

20 June 2017

I've been here a few times and I think this is the best kept secret in RFD.  Plenty of options of places to eat, either at the market or surrounding areas.  My suggestion is to get there as early as possible.  I've varied the times I've gone and the later it is, vendors might run out.  There are maybe two or three places to actually buy produce etc,so don't get your hopes up on cleaning house on veggies.  However, food and beer are abundant, as well as live music.  Great local artists selling their items as well.  Plenty of parking near by.  Don't be afraid to hang by the river!

Great vibe. Entertainment and food options are good. Wish it was actually a "market" as well with local (within 50 miles) produce. $10 for a jar of pickled beets doesn't count. More...

Thumbs up for the RCM. I hear people complain about how "crowded" it is, but what can you expect being that it is downtown, and viewing the river in all its glory? Great music and food. Socially impressive. More...

The atmosphere, the music, the vendors, the food and of course, the beer, are all the wonderful reasons to come wind down on a Friday night in the summer at Rockford City Market! Plus I love running in to people I know. Such a great time! More...

We had a really good time. I would had liked more fresh food vendors also maybe a station for children. Since a lot of people go as families there was not a lot for kids to get intertained.

After yet another work week we look forward to going to City Market! We go every Friday meeting our friends and making new! Never once have we been bothered by anyone. After the market our friends go with us as we enjoy one the great restaurants downtown for dinner. City Market is a great success...one we are happy to be part of! More...

Liked the atmosphere, nice to go for a stroll on Friday evening while getting some food and a drink. A little disappointed in the drink selection, if you don't like beer or Pepsi you are pretty much out of luck. Also, I would have liked more fresh food vendors (produce, dairy etc.). We used to buy more food at the market when we lived in Europe than at the supermarket. It was fresher and cheaper. More...

Good food, great beer selection, musical entertainment all in one easily accessed venue on Friday afternoon and evening in downtown Rockford. No reason to go anywhere else as it's all here. Plus lots of vendors with "one of a kind" merchandise to sell that is reasonably priced. See you at the Market! More...

I have been going to this market since it first opened since it was walking distance from my past employer. I loved he local specialty shops and produce that were there. They have added more over the years as well as a pavilion for shade which is great! Only negative thing I could say more seating More...

Rockford City Market is a fun twist on a Farmer's Market that is in Downtown Rockford on Water Street between State and Market. There are people selling homemade crafts, produce, meats and cheeses, beer (yes, beer! Carlyle's brewing company has a table there and some local distributor as well), food and entertainment! From what I gathered, the booths change through out the season; some are only there for certain days while others for the entire show. That can be good or bad. If you find a place you like they may not be there the next week, but there may be something you like more! Plus the entertainment changes every week. This week while there we bought beer, a necklace and earrings for my wife, candied nuts, beer, peaches, pet odor eliminate candles, beer, sweet corn, Bleu cheese, a 5 gallon bucket, beer (not a 5 gallon bucket of beer!) some food and just had a good time. We even were able to take our son over to the permanent cooling off fountain the city has where he and the other kids can play in it while the parents watched. It was a good time. We killed 2 hours here just hanging out. Parking is a little difficult. There is a lot of public parking, but it was full by the time we arrived and ended up having to park in the public lot over by the Metro Center. This isn't a bad walk, nice scenic view crossing the State Street bridge over the mighty Rock River. If you go, bring cash. Some places might take cards or checks, but it seemed mostly to be a cash only arrangement. More...
