The Village of Bellevue...a Village with a Vision

Posted 2/18/2015 11:52am by Brigette Leach.

When the Village of Bellevue did their master plan, the plan included a Farmers Market. It's one thing to put a Farmers Market in a Master Plan, but another thing to get a Farmers Market started and have it thrive. As often happens in small, friendly towns, one conversation led to another and the Village Council invited the Battle Creek Farmers Market Association to sponsor a market in Washington Park. The Association was willing to give it a try, holding the first market day on August 9, 2007.Picture

Well, the farmers market was a huge success for the small town. Today, customers will find our vendors under the beautiful pavilion which was built in 2012, replacing the pavilion that stood in the park for many years,  and music being played in the gazebo that was part of that same building project. There are plenty of picnic tables in the shade of stately park trees to enjoy. Children will enjoy the park playground. Parking is conveniently located along the street.
 
Our vendors, and their products, are family friendly. The Village of Bellevue sponsors live music each market day for everyone to enjoy. It's a great place to catch up with friends, grab a bite to eat and have a picnic in the park, or prepare for the coming weeks meals with fresh Michigan fruits and vegetables, maple syrup, baked goods and more.
 
The Bellevue Farmers Market is held on Thursday afternoons, from 3 to 6 PM. Opening day is June 4th and the last market day is September 24th.
