BH EM Logo

The Burns Harbor Food Truck Square is located at the former site of the Westport Community Club, off of Rt. 149. Every consecutive Wednesday evening beginning the first on May 30th through Wednesday, September 12th Market hours are 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The Market attracts merchants selling a broad array of goods, including ethnic and gourmet foods, baked goods such as artisan breads and pastries, spices, organic produce, fresh flowers, produce from local farmers and orchards, rare books, cheeses, handmade soaps, lotions and oils, jewelry, candles, pottery, clothing and fashion accessories, toys, fine art, pet products and much more. Our Market management team is committed to providing the best customer and merchant experience available while maintaining a professional and organized artisan’s market.

There is no general admission to the Food Truck Square. Picnic tables are available to the public, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating, especially for Movie Nights, if desired. Portable restrooms and parking also available.

The Burns Harbor Redevelopment Commission activated the Food Truck Square in 2016 as part of an overall mission towards economic and community growth. Located on the historic former site of the Westport Community Club, Burns Harbor leaders plan on leveraging the Food Truck Square’s ambiance to create a sense of place and pride for residents, visitors and businesses by enhancing the Town’s identity. The Food Truck Square also serves as a site activation to build upon Burns Harbor’s charming heritage and history — to help create a pedestrian-friendly town center and continue to evolve Burns Harbor into a vibrant small town.
