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...

The city market is a bustling place to listen to music, grab a bite to eat, view vendors’ wares and enjoy Rockford’s downtown area.
This is a great way to bring Rockford back

good place for people to show off their wares and for people to mingle.
Sandy Spaulding Welte
A wonderful selection of the many vendors��
A great affordable night out along the beautiful Rock River! One of the best things happening in Rockford. Makes me proud to live here.
very fun little outing :)
Good to see down town Rockford come alive, with good food,Music, with old friends and meeting new one.Just to see and taste all the new things going on.
Carol Brown Totten

Rachel Corniel McGaw
The music and beer tents need to stay open later!!!
Milana Nollman Bergstrom
Such a fun night! We were so impressed with the variety of food and drink and loved the music. My only suggestion is more bathrooms ;)
We visit the market 4 or 5 times a summer. We enjoy it very much. Friendly vendors with a good mix of vendor merchandise. Nice variation of live music entertainment. Good food and cold beer.
Ronit’s Kitchen has the best falafel in town!
Very busy because it was such a beautiful night to spend enjoying music and great food and drink along the riverfront.
Deb Thomas Wheeler
Beautiful evening to enjoy good food, a drink and music. Especially meeting a few of our Rockford Peaches
Wunnerfull, Wunnerfull, Wunnerfull!!! I just go to get the featured loaf of bread at Crust’s and Crumble’s. Then it’s off to get a Churros for me and The RMTD Trolley Car driver who returns me to The Discovery Center. Lately, I’ve been going to The Villa Capri for dinner. Excellent food, good prices and suberb service. More...
Fabulous evenings with a variety things to do! I absolutely Love markets & the Rockford Market has so much to offer!!! Food, produce, soap, music, fresh produce, wine & entertainment! Perfect evening!!! The variety of vendors is amazing! More...
Had a great time at City Market. Seen good friends. Eat good food.
Busy busy busy. Have lots of vendors to check out
Great event, but I and everyone there don’t understand why they closed at 7:30 the last couple weeks? They almost made the entertainment stop even earlier?
I love getting together as a city and enjoying this outdoor event. Also love the fact that everything was positive and nothing negative happen
I go every week I love it. Sad it was the last one
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...

beware people...black males shaking down people as they return to their cars...happened to me tonight and two weeks ago..
Excellent as usual. Fun times with entertainment, all sorts of yummy's and great beers not to mention all the people watching fun!
Catherine Pontnack Wilson
Cookie was awesome. Love to see her there with her whole band.
Great music, great food and great times. Fantastic
Margit Gitte Dalton
I love all the food and the Pig Minds beer there! Enjoy sipping on my beer while listening to the music ! Just a nice atmosphere to relax on a Friday night!
It's a blessing some fun and relaxing to do good food music and people i loved it looking forward to next Friday!
Satnam Singh Hanspal
I like it because it is beautiful city in The world

Missy Thomas Garrison
Great Time! Awesome people with amazing products! Very happy atmosphere!
Love it� I enjoy all the food, music hanging out & running into people that I haven't seen in a long time.
Judy Eno Nelson
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...
I really love going to there I go there on Fridays when I can cause good food and really nice people and awesome music like yesterday when I went � light dimmers they were awesome
Wish Freeport had a similar venue! Such a relaxing evening...
It's always a great time to meet up with friends and meet new people. Live entertainment, good food and always a great atmosphere.
Great place to visit.lots of venders.and food. Worth a tripp.
Christopher D. Sims
Great vendors, liveliness, and musical entertainment. A good place to be on Fridays in downtown Rockford.
Had a great time, very good to take a family to. We ate Zammuto's Italian Ice from their booth, which was 5.00 for 2 small. We also rode the trolley.
We had a blast. It isn't too busy. When you first get there so it was nice being able to walk around and don't have to go through crowds
I enjoyed the weather,the crowd and the entertainment. Very good for the city and cheap entertainment �
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! More...
Mary Jo Patch
The have a load of food, drinks & entertainment. A Whole Lot of Fun!
Daniel W. Goldberg
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...
Best Friday night date in town. Love the sights, sounds, drinks, and the food. We really enjoy the downtown area.
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...
I like rockford city market was the best place for them to have fun lifes
Parking guidance and traffic control would be very helpful! Otherwise it is a fun time - just a little crowded. Hoping they expand this some more.
Jeffrey M Rust
Best thing to happen in Rockford since....actually I can't think of the last good thing that happened in Rockford. Thank you RCM for breathing life back into this city. Good Job!
Good food, good beer, good entertainment and the best part is seeing friends that I haven't seen in a while!!�
It's always a great time at City Market with good friends
QueenJean Fisher Olivencia
Great food, great venue, and wonderful pace to hang out and catchup with friends
It's such a positive event in the community. We look forward to this every year.
This has become the 'Go To' weekly event for the summer.
Kathia Adalet Jones
This market rocks! What better was to start the weekend!
Great event, Rockford! It wasn't a gorgeous night (9/30), but the place was still humming with great vendors and people obviously happy to be there A special shout-out to Nattha's Thai Kitchen - the chicken spring rolls were incredible
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.
DeAnna Smyth Bredeson
Thanks for another terrific year of Friday night fun!!!
Bea Giammarese Ricotta
I love City Market. It's a great way to wind down after the work week. Grab a drink, a snack, shop, listen to music, visit with friends. I really enjoyed the addition one week of the Vintage vendors! Nice job! More...
Kevin J. McCarthy
We LOVE the City Market. You hang out, relax while forgetting about the rest of the world or your problems. It's music, food, friends and a fun time for all.
Nick J. Theyerl
Music, food, and drink were all excellent. City Market is a great opportunity to see what some local businesses have to offer as well as socialize and relax.
Becky Ward Hines
This is always a fun date night, it seems we see something new every time. The vendors are all very nice, the crowds are very family-friendly. We enjoyed taking our time and seeing all there is to see. Great music, great food. Thank you Rockford City Market! More...
Kristina D Reuber
Each visit is different. Lots of options for food. Wish there was more variety in drink options. Overall great experience.
Great place to shop for home made trinkets from gardens to lady's clothing to food
Great food, great vendors, live music ....what's not to love. ❤
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...
I HAD A GREAT TIME WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS LOST AT PEOPLE HAVING FUN LOTS OF GOOD FOOD AND APPETIZERS.
I think it was a fun filled event and music would make it better
Great weather and a lot of familiar faces made for a nice evening. Good beer and food, did miss the wine vendor.
Irene Skadoske Meeker
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...
Great time. Food, music, and nice people. It's great to see "stuff" happening in our city! High yo recommended it! Get out, get so e food, and enjoy our city!
Is to get to,nice verity from food for people-your dogs. Nice verity of merchandise.
Catherine Lynn Owen
Love Downtown Rockford City Market Food. Drink. Music. Friends.
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...
Great local food and products. Amazing local vendors!
Haven't been to that one in years. But I know that public spaces in the middle of cities make a city a home. You go, Rockford!
David J. Zoberis Sr.
Had a great experience earlier this summer, RAC sponsored a place to show my artwork.
LOVE this place! It's a perfect way to spend your Friday's. My absolute favorite place to be :-)
Amazing market! Love supporting our local farmers :))
Good food, good music, and helping to support our community!
Love going to the city market!! Somethin fun and new to do in this town. There should be more events like this!
The Rockford City Market is one of the best things to ever happen to Rockford!
Time for a great night out. Mingle with friends. Eat. Drink. And be screwey
Great selection of food vendors! All local booths selling local items.
Sara Christian Schwarz
I Absolutely Love that We have a Market to go to:-D:-D
Rick L Peters
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...
