The next Rock Island Artists’ Market is this Sunday, September 8!  This family-friendly market will take place from 12-4 pm in the parking lot of Skeleton Key Art and Antiques at 520 18th Street, Rock Island, and will repeat on the second Sunday of each month through October. Admission to the market is free.

Shoppers can expect to find a variety of art, local produce, handcrafted goods and more, all sold by the artists, creators and growers.

The September market will feature food and drinks by Kavanaugh’s Hilltop Bar and Grill, popcorn by G’s Popcorn of Moline, and music by Roger Carlson.

Patrons who need to beat the heat can pop into Skeleton Key Art and Antiques, the host of the market, and cool off while shopping additional artists and makers.
