Downtown Kankakee Farmers Market


Downtown Kankakee is a unique mix of old and new. Century old brick and stone structures stand alongside modern steel and glass buildings. Downtown Kankakee is the governmental, financial and legal center of the city and the county. By day, downtown is buzzing with the vital business of the Kankakee county seat. By night, the sounds of acoustic guitars and vocal harmonies spill out onto the sidewalks. Crowds gather for movies or concerts at the stunning Paramount Theater or in the lawn of the iconic Illinois Central Depot. It is also home to a first-rate music festival, a renowned Saturday morning Farmers' Market and even a railroad museum.

Welcome to downtown Kankakee - we hope that you will take part in the exciting resurgence of our city's historic core.
