Great Antique Shopping
The antiques industry thrives in the Great Rivers & Routes region, with entire city blocks dedicated to antique stores and recurring events -- like a riverfront flea market or city street-based picker’s market -- bringing people from throughout the area to our cities. If you can’t find a relic that you simply can’t live without, you’re not looking hard enough!
There will be an abundance of delicious fresh produce, crafts, baked goods, plants & flowers, locally-raised hormone-free meat, handmade soaps, jewelry, artwork, pottery, art demonstrations and more at the Alton Farmers' & Artisans' Market. Admission is free for shoppers and there is plenty of parking at its new permanent location in the city-owned parking lot at the corner of Landmarks and Henry Street.
