Improving its marketing strategy

Work continued Monday on the Sterling Market project, where a covered walkway was being built just west of the Twin City Farmers Market at 106 Ave. A. The council approved the low bid of $951,418.95 from Porter Brothers of Rock Falls in May for the covered marketplace facility after the Sterling Market project had stalled earlier this year. Plans got back on track in January when Sterling Today decided to contribute $400,000 to the project. The marketplace construction is tied to work being done at Sterling Today’s Mercantile building at 117 W. Third St., and is part of a multi-phase project that will include parking lot and other paving improvements and landscaping. The project will allow the Twin City Farmers Market to expand outdoors and give other events, such as the Harvest Moon Festival and the Hops on the Rock craft beer festival, a better venue. The Twin City Farmers Market is open 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays year-round and features locally sourced food, crafts, artwork, jewelry and more. Go to twincityfarmersmarket.com or find Twin City Farmers Market on Facebook for more information.
