Will Spring Ever Arrive?

You could say we lucked out, I guess. I mean we did miss out on the worst of the weekend storm. Seeing pictures from the Dakotas where they had blizzard conditions and from around the rest of Michigan, it's hard not to think that.

As I sit here watching the chunks of ice fall off the tree outside my office it's a little hard to believe that opening day for the downtown Farmers Market is just 17 days away. But it is! The good news is that several new vendors are joining both the Battle Creek and Bellevue markets. New to the Bellevue market are 2 Guys and a Grill, and Baba Turk Doner who will be at both Battle Creek and Bellevue. They will be offering ready to eat food so plan on making your way to the market soon to enjoy it! New to Battle Creek is Richard Moncrief, Specialty Cheesecake and Dessert. Also new is Shyam Shepard and Amanda Castro with Pachamama Street Food. Cliff Rensberger, Sweets and Meats, and Jackson Bredehoft with Cafe Rica USA bring totally new products to Battle Creek. Milk and Quakers, operated by Kristy Skinkle will be bringing her line of personal care items. Peecoon Allen, Umami Ramen, is back along with her friend Herman Jagush who is doing business as Koharu Japanese Cuisine. We're going to be the best place in town for lunch!! Looking for fresh cut flowers? Deb Gigkowski is planning to attend on Saturdays to help you out.

We hope you'll come by the market soon to make these new vendors feel welcome. It's going to be a great market season. See you soon.
