In one month the tenth season of the outdoor City Market kicks off. In celebration, organizers announced a new special event scheduled in June.

You might be thinking "City Market has been around for ten years?!" It may seem wrong but it isn't and the events birthday makes for a great (and another) reason to shop, eat, and drink in downtown Rockford. Now, ambitious and athletic City Market patrons can run in excitement, literally. City Market will host the Race To The Market 5k on June 7, 2019, in downtown Rockford.

Rockford's outdoor City Market is May 17 - September 27, 2019.
