East State Street The City Market


Te City Market will become a cornerstone anchor in the Phase 1 focus area that connects people to people, and to a variety of rituals, activities, and products. Te Market’s strategic location on East State Street will encourage people to spend more leisure time in the broader area, enjoying the local shops, eateries, and recreational activities. Growing from its spring-2010 opening, the City Market will eventually bring farmers, artisans, retailers, restaurants, festivals, and performers to a diverse mix of customers, and operate on a year-round basis inside a permanent building in the Phase 1 Focus Area. Programming of events, performances, and a weekly beer garden on the upper parking deck will encourage repeat visitation by many Rockfordians.


Arts and Culture


Since its founding, Rockford has had a thriving local arts community. Trough theater and visual arts, to music and live performance, Rockfordians have expressed their creativity with enthusiasm. Performances by local bands can already be enjoyed in the bars and restaurants along East State Street. Tis tradition will grow, with recording studios and music equipment retailers joining the district. Other creative uses, such as art galleries, a culinary and wine school, and other arts and cultural retailers, could also locate along the street, lending energy and interest to the district.
