Rockford City Market celebrates National Honey Month

Staff Report

In honor of September being National Honey Month, guests at the market can celebrate by shopping at the market’s two honey vendors’ booths: Little Red’s Honey Farm and Raines Honey Farm. The two vendors offer fresh, natural honey produced in the region. Raines Honey Farm also occasionally features a live beehive where guests can gaze on bees producing honey right before their eyes. In addition to the pure honey, the two vendors also sell other items for patrons to enjoy including candles, soaps, spreads and more.

Harlan Jefferson will be performing a variety of music styles including Motown, jazz, R&B and more.

Andrew Robinson will be playing acoustic folk, soul and pop-rock on the acoustic stage.

Discovery Center Museum will have a free craft of fall Wind Socks made of paper, streamers, strings, stampers and more.

Midway Village Museum will also be offering kids’ activities.

Visit the Rockford Health System booth at Market and Water Streets this week. Staff from both the Diabetes & Nutrition Services Department and Endocrinology Department will be on hand to share information with City Market guests.

Northern Illinois Food Bank will have representatives at the gates promoting their events and ways you can help in honor of September being Hunger Action Month.

Botny Accessories will be at the rotating artist booth with handmade jewelry and accessories made from shrinkable plastic and resin.
