Farmers Markets

Every Saturday morning from 8 a.m. to noon mid-May until the end of September the Peoria RiverFront Market takes over the 200 block of Water Street and it is the place to be in Peoria. Visitors can shop for local produce, meats, cheese, prepared foods, handcrafted goods plus so much more! The Riverfront Market is what all farmer’s markets should aspire to be. Also featured is a one-of-a-kind selection of art including pottery, blown glass, jewelry, candles all handcrafted by local artists. Along with the local art and produce many restaurants, bars and other businesses within walking distance take part in the market by having free samples or discounted items. The RiverFront Market is nestled up against the Illinois River in the River Station parking lot directly across from the Peoria Riverfront Museum. Plenty of free parking is available in the surrounding lots and streets. 

If you are here during the winter and wishing you could taste this great market, make sure to keep an eye out for the Winter RiverFront Market. This market is inside the Peoria Riverfront Museum and features all the local vendors you will love.
