We enjoy eating here for a fast lunch when shopping in town. You order your food at the counter and it's delivered to your table. Food is better than fast food and tasty. We'll return.

I have grown up coming to Mary's Market and I always have an excellent meal. The staff are always very friendly and the food is very good. The petit fours that they make are awesome and moist and the apple pie with melted caramel on top - OH MY GOODNESS to die for. Great place for coffee, tea, food, company,... More

On Sunday, June 8th at around 8:30am, I was at Mary's Market on McFarland Rd. I was THREE PENNIES short...having $5.10 with me. Rather than saying, "Don't worry about it, go ahead," the employee rigidly stood there, implying in the awkwardness that THREE CENTS are important, even vital. Her pettiness alone was enough for me to leave the restaurant at... More

Good selection, making it easy for everyone to find something they wanted to try. The soups we had were particularly good – thought the seafood bisque was delicious! Recommend at least asking for a sample taste. Reasonably priced as four of us ate and drank our fill for under $50.

Mary's Market is a local (3 stores) upscale sandwich shop in Rockford. It is really better than that other national upscale sandwich shop. My favorite location is the one on North Alpine because it is a little quieter than the one off of Perryville Road. There is also a courtyard shared by the various stores there with tables and chairs... More

Because of the reviews, four of us visited the Mary's Market Cafe and Bakery location on State Street while we were passing through on a Saturday evening. It was not very busy at all, with just a few other customers while we were there. This restaurant is tucked behind Aunt Mary's Restaurant, so if you are coming from I-90/39, you'll... More

Mary's Market is one of our favorite places to grab a sandwich when we're in Rockford. The East State Street location is smaller, less crowded and a little too quiet for us. We like the McFarland location more, it's more alive. I usually get the goat cheese and bacon wrap and my wife usually gets the fish tacos. The food... More

Rockford in general lacks great bakery goods, but Mary's Market Cafe and Bakery IS the spot to go. The atmosphere is great along with the excellent food. This is one of the best places in Rockford to sit either alone or with friends to enjoy a great cup of coffee. They are extremely good at making drinks, so I would... More
