The building at 2210 Rapids Drive has changed throughout the years. Racine residents may remember that Zayre’s Department store once occupied the building. The space across from Horlick High School was also a grocery store at one point in time.
Changes have occurred at The Rapids Drive Plaza throughout the years. Now, the Farmers Market @ 2210 is here to stay. The Farmers Market at 2210 is located at 2210 Rapids Drive. The Rapids Plaza is now home to many vendors within the market.
The Northside residents lucked out because this newer farmers market is operating year-round. The Wisconsin winters and bitter cold won’t stop Racine residents from getting out to get a taste of what we usually know to be a summer event.
