Attendees at tomorrow's Rockford City Market might get a chance to win prizes from some of their favorite vendors.

Market favorites Kate's PieShop Records, Candle Crest Soy Candles, and The Sweetery are each hosting contests during the market for a select few participants. Participants can enter the Kate's Pieshop Pie Eating Contest, Candle Crest's Smelling Bee, and The Sweetery's Cakepop Chubby Bunny contest.

Winners will receive a $15 gift certificate to Kate's, candles from Candle Crest, and a four pack of cupcakes from The Sweetery. For a chance to enter the contests, visit the Rockford City Market's Facebook page.

Contests are not the only thing going on at the market, though. Attendees can enjoy the music of Empty Pockets, an alternative indie rock band, and get their faces painted thanks to the Auburn Key Club. Local Macaroni Kids newsletter publisher Taylor Westfall will also be on hand with a craft for kids.

The Rockford City Market takes place every Friday through October 12 along Water Street. It's open from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. before Labor Day and 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. after Labor Day. For a list of vendors, visit their website.
