Back-to-school season at City Market

It’s back-to-school time for Rockford area students and Rockford City Market is selling items for everyone heading back to the classroom this week. Kids, teachers – and market guests in general – are able to unwind from a week back at school at the market on Friday.

While relaxing at the market, shoppers are able to buy supplies and special items to help them in the classroom. Teachers can decorate their classrooms with unique lamps from E&E Lighting, or a shelf for classroom supplies from End Row Design Co. Students can also find items to help them at school such as notebooks and planners from Sunny and 74, or fun accessories from The Vintage Beau or Tiny Bird Boutique to go with new school outfits.

In addition, Rockford Vintage Market comes back this Saturday, August 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, visit
