Battle Creek Farmers Market at Festival Market Square

Festival Market Square in downtown Battle Creek was totally renovated in 2015. The beautifully updated park is one of the centers for downtown Battle Creek activities, including the Wednesday and Saturday Farmers Market and Food Truck Friday. Covered stall space for vendors and a covered central walkway are highlights of the renovated area.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bellevue Farmers Market

 

Small towns are great places to live and raise a family. Bellevue, Michigan is no exception. It's the kind of place where you know your neighbors. There's a strong sense of community in Bellevue and many families with deep roots in that community live there. When the Battle Creek Farmers Market Association was invited to start a farmers market there, it seemed like a good idea. And it has turned out to be just that!

With a beautiful park very near the downtown business area, Bellevue already had the perfect location. The park is large with stately old trees to provide shade. A recent renovation provides a spacious lighted pavilion and a gazebo for the farmers market to use. Farmers market customers can enjoy not only the market, but picnic tables and a playground as well. It's fun to bring or buy a bite to eat and listen to live music or just visit with friends and neighbors. Customer parking is street side so it's easy and convenient, too. The entire area is pedestrian friendly and handicap accessible.
