Opening Day 2017

Posted 3/29/2017 3:19pm by Brigette Leach.

May 3rd, 2017. That's opening day for the downtown Battle Creek Farmers Market at Festival Market Square.

June 1, 2017 is opening day for the Bellevue Farmers Market in Washington Park.

Vendors will be returning with lots of good things to eat, whether you want to cook it yourself or let someone else cook it for you.

New this year will be an increased number of crafters with handmade items, either made with a Michigan grown agricultural crop or related to food, food preparation, gardening. So if you are a crafts person making pottery, fiber art, garden art, bird houses, aprons, market bags or kitchen themed items now is the time to find out more about our markets. All crafts will be considered but preferences are given to these types of items. See the "for vendors" tab for more information.

Also new this year is Food Truck Friday in Battle Creek. The Farmers Market Association is joining with Kellogg Arena to host the 4 events, each of which coincides with another event going on in downtown Battle Creek. From 5 to 9 on May 19th, June 9, July 14 and August 11 you and your friends will be able to enjoy food vendors, market vendors, crafts, music and beer. Make it your place to be on Fridays to start your weekend off right!
