Battle Creek Farmers Market at Festival Market Square
May 2, 2015 is opening day for the all new Festival Market Square location. The totally renovated Festival Market Square park will be one of the centers for downtown Battle Creek activities, including the Wednesday and Saturday Farmers Market. Covered stall space for vendors and a covered central walkway are highlights of the renovated area, as is a centrally located stage area. In addition to being the permanent home for the downtown Battle Creek Farmers Market the space will be utilized for other activities such as concerts and festivals. Watch for more details!
For old times sake, here's what Festival Market Square used to look like.
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.
