Fall of 2021 in Rockford just got a fresh and delicious upgrade. Rockford's newest farmers market will be indoors. Here are the inaugural season details.

Farmers market shoppers, I was just sent some really good news. Rockford's MidTown District just announced the first season of Rockford's MidTown Market heading indoors.

Such a great scene for the Fall of 2021. There are some great things happening around the city of Rockford, right now.

It's a blessing to be right here, in this moment, sharing this news. I hope you are able to recognize that your presence, in this moment with me, is also a blessing.

Rockford Midtown Market

Rockford Midtown Market is a partnership between the Midtown District Association and Katie’s Cup – both of which are 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organizations serving the Midtown neighborhood of Rockford.

 

“Building community around food, music, coffee, crafts, and family-inclusive activities is what we’ve been known for,” says Heather Ashcraft (Katie's Cup/Manager for Rockford Midtown Market's inaugural Fall Season)

 

Heather, those are wonderful words. Exactly the kind of words that get me so excited about some of the changes in Rockford and how our community is growing.
