East Lansing Farmer's Market
The East Lansing Farmer's Market, a growers-only market, is located in an inviting, open-air atmosphere, just steps away from the Michigan State University campus. Customers can fill their shopping bags with a diverse selection of fresh, farm-grown Michigan produce and products, including fresh vegetables, grass-fed beef, artisan bread, cheese, all-natural chicken, organic produce and much more.

2015 Vendor Application
Michigan growers and producers are encouraged to apply for a spot in the 2015 East Lansing Farmer’s Market. Applications received by March 6, 2015 will be given priority in the vendor selection process. Download the 2015 guidelines and application (PDF).

2015 Market Season
The 2015 ELFM will take place June 7-October 25, 2015 on Sundays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Valley Court Park, 280 Valley Court.

“100% Homegrown Makes Us Different” 
What makes the ELFM unique is that every item sold by vendors is 100% homegrown. Vendors must either grow their own produce or make their own products. In essence, customers at the market enjoy authentic local Michigan goods rather than purchasing wholesale items.

Bridge Cards, Double Up Food Bucks Accepted
Customers can enjoy SNAP Bridge Card benefits, or Michigan Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) and Double Up Food Bucks benefits.
