Long-term Rockford City Market vendor, Kokobear Bakery, has announced that after this Friday's market they are closing their business, and cheesecake lovers all over the city are crying.

I know what you're thinking, "WHY?? Why would they want to do this to us?!?" The answer? They don't, but today's economic climate has forced them to.

This Friday is the final Rockford City Market for the 2017 season, and the weather is looking perfect, so you better plan on getting there early. While you're there be sure to give Kokobear Bakery some extra love and thank them for the great memories and delicious treats. I hope they come triple stocked because I plan on freezing lots of their deliciousness.
