Outdoor markets are HOT right now, and one of the best ones is coming back this weekend. 

Rockford can't get enough of their outdoor spaces right now. City Market was overflowing two weeks ago when it was nice. The attendance of Food Truck Tuesdays at Nicholas Conservatory seemed to have doubled over two weeks. It's nice, we can leave our houses again, and the Stateline is eating it up.

Andrea from GoRockford.com made her weekly visit to the show to let us know what to do over the weekend. She has a lot of great ideas, listen to her interview above. There's a ton of live music going on around town and another awesome event at Khlem.

But what caught my eye was the return of the Italian market on Sundays outside of Lino's. It's called the Pasqua Mercado Markey, I'm not sure if that's what it was called in the past, and it sounds awesome. Here's a list of some of the vendors that will be set up.

Plus there will be a wine tent presented by Artale. You're going to find something to buy when you're there.

Weather is supposed to be nice. The Pasqua Mercato Market runs every Sunday (excepth July 4th) June 6th - August 28th from 11AM - 3PM in the parking lot outside of Lino's.
