What's New at Rockford City Market this Friday

Weekly Specials

Caramel Crunch Pretzels
Northwoods Premium Confections will feature caramel crunch pretzels - mini pretzels coated with a caramel-flavored toffee. They have a delicious buttery caramel flavor and are crunchy and tender with just the right balance of salty and sweet. Choose from snack size ($2), medium ($4) and large ($8) sizes. They make a mouth-watering snack for yourself or a great gift for the pretzel or toffee-lover in your family!

Cheese of the Week - Texochile Cheddar
The Cheese People of Rockton will feature Texochile Cheddar as their cheese of the week. The cheese is a young white cheddar with roasted jalapenos in a spicy tomato marinade. It's not as hot as it looks and is excellent on scrambled eggs or in a quesadilla. Stop by their booth to try a sample.

Drinks from JavaMania
JavaMania Coffee Roastery has freshly roasted organic coffee, hot or iced espresso drinks and mango smoothies for sale this week.
