From how to take soil samples to planting a flower, how to make a bath bomb or carve a pumpkin, customers can watch and  learn, maybe even get a chance to try it for themselves.

2020 Sponsorship Opportunities

Once each month our chef demonstrators will feature a recipe made with a choice of the hundreds of seasonal Michigan grown fruit or vegetable items available at the farmers market. Customers get a sample and the recipe.

Welcome to the Battle Creek Farmers Market!

Festival Market Square in downtown Battle Creek is just one of the event spaces and park areas to be enjoyed in Battle Creek. Newly renovated in 2015, Festival Market Square is located at 25 S McCamly Street and serves as home to the downtown Battle Creek Farmers Market, held on Wednesday, May through October and Friday from May through August.

Whether you are a local family, a visitor from out of town, a local farmer, or a producer of a Michigan food product, there is a place for you at the market. Local families will find an accessible market with family friendly vendors and products. Visitors will find unique Michigan products and tasty treats. There is convenient and free customer parking.

The Association welcomes vendors who grow and process local foods. Vendors will find a thriving marketplace with new, covered facilities, convenient to use stall spaces, and vendor friendly management. For further information on becoming part of the market, contact Brigette Leach.

It's official! The Battle Creek Farmers Market at Festival Market Square will open on Wednesday, May 6th.

With the Governors Stay at Home order rescinded we can take a few steps moving toward a more typical farmers market. For starters, all of our vendors can attend the market and bring all of their products. Huge step in a positive direction. The picnic tables are once again in the Center Circle and you can now stay at the market to enjoy the delicious prepared foods our vendors offer. The tables are spaced out and will be cleaned after use. Hand washing stations and sanitation protocols continue for your safety. Live music returned in August but other activities such as sampling and demonstrations are still not permitted. Which is so disappointing because we had a calendar full of Food Navigators, cooking demonstrations, kids activities and events scheduled.

Still we are very appreciative of all the customer support and are hopeful that additional restrictions can be safely lifted. Thanks again, everyone, for the support and cooperation!

 

Wednesday Market hours will be 9am to 2pm.

Friday Market hours will be 3 to 7pm.

Free 1 hour parking for farmers market customers is available in the Hamblin Avenue ramp.

Food Truck Friday events are tentatively being planned for May 15 (cancelled due to Executive Order), June 19 (proceeding as scheduled without live music or children's activities), July 17, August 14.
