Rockford Indoor Market Closes on Downtown Location

It will create 130 construction and permanent jobs.

ROCKFORD - Rockford's soon-to-be year-round indoor market has closed on its downtown location.

The $5.2 million development will transform a building at 114-116-118 Madison Street into a year-round market featuring a variety of community uses.

It will be compromised of a market hall, permanent tenants and a shared use commercial kitchen for entrepreneurs, all of which will complement the Rockford City Market held in the adjacent pavilion in summer and fall.

"We're excited to be one step closer to offering an indoor city market to our residents," said Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara. "The outdoor market is a wonderful gathering place for the community, and we hope to see the same environment with this new venture."

The development will create 130 construction and permanent jobs.

Project financing includes funding from the City of Rockford, Southside Community Optimal Redevelopment Enterprise, Rockford Bank and Trust, US Bank and Twain Financial Partners.
