Battle Creek Farmers Market and Kellogg Arena

2021 Food Truck Friday Series

May 14 through September 24


It's all good at Festival Market Square! Live music, farmers market vendors and the new downtown Battle Creek Social District to enjoy. Bring a comfy lawn chair so you can enjoy an evening in the fresh outdoor air. We'll have the Corn Hole and Jenga games out as well as chalk and the bubble machine for the kids. Even more activities are planned for upcoming FTF's now that COVID restrictions have been relaxed. Check our calendar and Facebook pages often so you know what's going on!

2021 Food Truck Fridays will be a little different than those of the past. Attendance restrictions due to COVID were in place as the season was planned, limiting earning potential for Food Vendors. If we have more vendors than customers, vendors don't make a profit, and making a profit is the point for all the hard work they do. We want vendors to have a profitable event so rather than seeing a line-up of 8-10 Food Trucks each time, we welcome you to enjoy a variety of delicious options from prepared food vendors over the course of the season with featured vendors each week. Now that restrictions have been relaxed, we expect crowd sizes to increase so more vendors will be invited to participate. There will be a variety of arts and crafts available over the season as well, and special visits from area businesses to share information about their products and services. With the latest update to COVID restrictions for markets we can once again offer activities and programming so watch for their return.
