ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — One local business is giving Rockford residents a dose of culture.
Pasqua Mercato, an Italian market, is taking over Rockford’s east side on Sundays. It’s put on by Lino’s Pizza and partners. The market invites people out to enjoy some Italian flair.
It’s out doors on East State Street right by Lino’s Pizza. Vendors offer shoppers a slew of Italian delicacies.
Organizers say Rockford needed an event like this.
“We need to create something that shows we have culture and community here within our own community, specifically our neighborhood, so to see people come out to support our neighborhood is excellent,” said Charlie Schweinler, Lino’s Pizza.
The market will be open every Sunday through August 11th from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
