Local families...local farmers...local foods. Fresh for you!

The all new Festival Market Square in downtown Battle Creek is home to the Battle Creek Farmers Market. A new structure provides cover from sun and rain and can accomodate 40 vendors undercover with space for more under pop-up awnings.

Our farmers market in downtown Battle Creek features Michigan grown and value added foods...seasonal vegetables, fruits, poultry, pork, beef, lamb, artisan cheese, honey, flowers, and baked goods. The market is organized and operated by the Battle Creek Farmers Market Association, established in 1992. Previous groups have operated a market in the downtown area since 1895.

During the 2015 market season the market has averaged 30 vendors on any given day, offering with a wide variety of fresh Michigan grown vegetables and fruits, meats, artisan cheese, eggs, flowers, baked goods and quality local crafts. Local restaurants and food trucks offer a wide variety of ready to eat items from pasties to Asian to Mexican to BBQ. Enjoy live music each market day, weather permitting.

Community, youth and service organizations are encouraged to participate in the market on Saturdays to promote their organizations and conduct occasional fund raising activities. Covered parking is available for market patrons in the Hamlin Avenue parking structure, the first hour is free!

Completely new, Festival Market Square is an ideal farmers market venue. Vendors and customers enjoy being in a covered facility, protected from the elements. Vendors bring the freshest fruits, vegetables and flowers from their fields and gardens to the market. Pastured chicken, beef, pork, and lamb are available. Freshly baked pies, breads, cookies and more are regular offerings, including gluten free. Local food trucks and restaurants offer ready to eat foods. Quiche anyone? It's all good!

The Battle Creek Farmers Market Association brings a delicious, fresh selection of local foods to our area, while providing a welcoming atmosphere for neighbors to gather in food and fellowship.... [more]

It's all locally grown and tastes great. The market is big enough to have a great selection, but small enough with close parking that I can be in and out quickly if I only have a couple of minutes.

I love the selection of products available at the Battle Creek Farmers Market! There's produce, baked goods, meat, flowers, eggs, honey and more.

Everything's home grown.... [more]
