Rockford City Market: Food Hall to Remain Open. Plus: What's Cancelled and What's Still Happening

Our food hall is open and operating on regularly scheduled hours, and we are taking the following precautions:

  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are available in the Market gallery to supplement the restrooms in the lower level.
  • We posted signage throughout the Market with tips on preventing the spread of germs and how to wash hands appropriately.
  • Our custodians are focusing on extra sanitization of surface areas, including tables, doors, railings, chairs, etc.

Cancellations

We’ve made the decision to cancel Music at the Market: an Evening with Espinosa and Coffey (March 20) and the Spring Market on April 3 due to the number of attendees normally being significantly higher than WCHD recommended twenty-five.

What’s Still Happening

Yoga at the Market (March 21), Spring Board Painting Class (March 25), and Cooking at the Market: Quick & Easy Eats (March 26) are still on –all with a max of 20 or less participants per class. If you haven’t had a chance to sign up for any of these classes, there are still some seats open for all three! We will make further decisions on April programming based on how things are progressing on a week-to-week basis

Food Hall Open

Our Food Hall restaurants–Crust & Crumbles, Ronit’s Kitchen and Quixotic Bakery–are open regular hours Tuesday through Saturday. Per standard legal guidelines, all of our food establishments are required to staff employees who are ServeSafe certified and are knowledgeable about best-practices for purchasing and receiving product, food preparation, serving guidelines, food safety management systems, and sanitation guidelines.They are all taking extra precautions at this time to ensure high-touch surface points (doors, railings, tables, chairs, registers, etc.) are thoroughly and frequently cleansed and monitored.

Event Spaces

Our event spaces are available for private rentals for future reservations and will accommodate weddings, meetings and parties up to 225 in our bowtruss room, with additional comparable space in the market hall.
