ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Rockford City Market got in on the Small Business Saturday action by hosting a holiday pop-up shop at the indoor City Market.

Dozens of local vendors were spread out through the two levels of the building, to provide a safe and socially distant environment for shoppers. This event provides those who run small businesses out of their homes a chance to talk with customers and sell their holiday items.

“We are so excited that Small Business Saturday is still up and going with everything going on. Obviously it looks a lot different this year. but it is really encouraging to see people shop local instead of going to Amazon,” said Becca Bartels, Holiday Pop-Up Shop event coordinator.
