About the Marketplace

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

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