Market Guests Encouraged to Give Feedback - Rockford City Market Releases Their Annual Patron Survey



September 18, 2018


ROCKFORD, IL – Rockford area residents and visitors who have attended Rockford City Market this season are encouraged to provide feedback on the market through Rockford City Market’s annual patron survey. Each year, the market releases a survey to provide market goers an outlet to provide feedback and comments on Rockford City Market and how it can be further improved. Feedback from past patron surveys has helped the market planners improve the vendor booth layout, learn what types of vendors shoppers want to see added to the market, and gain insight into what activities and events are favored by market guests. Each response and comment is taken into consideration and valued by the market. To take the survey, visit
