East Lansing Farmers Market Advisory Committee


The East Lansing Farmers Market (ELFM) Advisory Committee shall advise the market manager and make recommendations on vendor selection with an eye toward diversity and inclusivity. Committee members will also actively promote and recommend diverse vendors to apply to the market. The committee is an internal advisory committee with no decision-making authority on behalf of the City of East Lansing or its Council; therefore, it is not considered a public body.
