Have you been to the Canal Market in Utica? Spend your Sunday hunting for unique treasures just a five-minute drive from our charming family resort. Canal Market is famous for its incredible selection of antiques, collectibles, vintage goods, and handmade products. “Where the Past Meets the Present,” Canal Market is a fun outing for the whole family on a perfect weekend in the Northwoods.
Fill up your car with vintage furniture, antique home decor, and handcrafted items and ride back to our hotel in no time. Grab lunch at Jack's Place Restaurant & Bar or enjoy a meal at Bear Island Outdoor Bar & Grill. Our resort has a number of excellent dining options and restaurants near Starved Rock State Park. Change into your swimsuit and spend the rest of your Sunday at our fabulous indoor water park. Grand Bear Falls is open until 10 pm every Sunday evening in September. The market kicks off in May and is open through the end of September (from 10 am to 4 pm), so you still have time to enjoy one last summer shopping adventure!
From our Starved Rock hotel, it's easy to reach Canal Market. It's located less than two miles away across the Illinois River in Utica. Every Sunday, the market sets up on the campus of the LaSalle County Historical Society. If the weather is nice, you can go for a hike in beautiful Starved Rock State Park which is right next door to the market!
