Don’t forget to stop at the North End City Market this morning from 8am-noon at north main and auburn! Enter to win a bag of local goods and check out pickles, honey, baked goods as well as local produce like greens, tomatoes, peaches, blueberries, beans, cucumbers, zucchini, greens, onions, beets, and lots of beautiful flowers!

The Saturday morning market is dog friendly and a great place to shop and meet local vendors! Open every Saturday through October 16
One of the biggest reasons we love celebrating National Farmers Market week is because it gives a chance to highlight how grateful we are for our local farmers and everything they do to make farmers markets so special.

When you arrive at our North End City Market on Saturday mornings, you’re greeted by friendly faces and tables brimming with fresh produce. What you don’t see are the months (sometimes years!) of hard work that goes into getting that produce to the table at the market. From prepping, to planting, to nurturing, to harvesting, to displaying at Farmers Markets...we’re grateful for the extraordinary amount of work and care our farmers put into what they’re doing every single day.

You can find Tim from Broadview Farm and Gardens at our North End City Market on Saturday Mornings and at the Woodstock Farmers Market, Edgebrook Farmers Market, and Elgin Farmers Market!
There’s nothing better than fresh local honey from the Farmers Market! You can find Doug from Medearis Apiary at our Saturday morning North End City Market, and you can find Philip & Sharon from Raines Honey Farm and Donny & Layna from Hughes’s Happy Hives at our Friday night Rockford City Market! Stop by this week and see what all the buzz is about! Illinois Farmers Market Association Raines Honey Farm Hughes’s Happy Hives North End City Market
It's National Farmer's Market Week! Show your support and attend one of these awesome events this summer. Edgebrook Farmers Market Rockford Midtown Market Rockford City Market North End City Market Lino's

👏🏻 Another amazing show of energy tonight at the third of our four planting sessions for Spruce Up Week 2021 at Veterans Memorial Circle.

Many thanks to Megan Pease and Bryan Biehl, the wife-and-husband team who signed in just as we opened up at 4 p.m. and stayed for the entire session. 🌸🌼🌺

Just look at the intensity with which Megan was planting, and the speed with which Bryan kept delivering flowers. Megan is a professor of horticulture at Rock Valley College. She teaches a course called Plants and Society. Yes, she was definitely in her element here‼️

If you followed us last summer, you’ll recall Megan from our list of winners in the Auburn Street adopt-a-flowerbed contest. Megan had won first place for the work she did on the sidewalk plot on the north side of Auburn, just east of Logan. She has that bed again this year — and the one beside it, as she did last year.

Bringing all that planting oomph over to the center of the project tonight was most appreciated. With the help of this young couple on our one late-afternoon and early-evening planting session, we were able to finish work on the south median strip.

Megan and Bryan helped project leaders Rick Westlake and Ernie Redfern, and the ever-present and always supportive Lisa Westlake:
✅ fill in the ground around the evergreens with annuals
✅ w**d the neighboring bed
✅ and fill that bed with annuals as well.

Rick Westlake briefly broke away, as gardening elves are apt to do 😉 and also planted petunias behind the southeast monument wall — an added touch of beauty as we look forward to North End City Market opening this Saturday.

Lisa Westlake (not pictured because she was dashing about so fast) updated our signs with the date of the fourth and final neighborhood planting session of Spruce Up Week: May 22 – this Saturday.

🪴 We’ll be there 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Saturday. Join us!
