The Sandwich Association of Merchants is a group of retail shops that have joined forces to promote Sandwich, Illinois as a destination point of shopping.

Over the past twenty-five (25) years we have organized the “Taste of Sandwich” and Craft Show in downtown Sandwich, IL which runs in conjunction with the craft show at the Sandwich Fair Grounds held annually in September.  This event brings thousands of people to Sandwich each year to purchase crafts which consequently brings business to our community including our retail stores, antique shops, restaurants and gas stations.

The Sandwich Association of Merchants has also been an instrumental part of the Christmas celebration in Sandwich organizing the “Secret Santa” shopping that benefits the Sandwich High School Music program.

Why Shop Local?

Locally owned businesses build strong neighborhoods by sustaining communities, linking neighbors, and by contributing more to local causes. Your dollars spent in locally-owned businesses have three times the impact on your community as dollars spent at national chains. When shopping locally, you simultaneously create jobs, fund more city services through sales tax, invest in neighborhood improvement and promote community development.  Learn about our community.
