About the Marketplace

BC Cargo is a project of the Small Business Development Fund of the City of Battle Creek. The pop up shop marketplace is comprised of seven recycled shipping containers that create an area to eat, shop, relax, and enjoy downtown Battle Creek. BC Cargo is located on city-owned property at 35 W. Hamblin Avenue in the parking lot of Full Blast.

BC Cargo launched in the Spring of 2018 and includes a collective of new small businesses run by local entrepreneurs desiring to launch in the Battle Creek market. The marketplace provides a lower cost to market entry and support merchants with wrap around services to nurture development and growth.
