The East Lansing Downtown Underground Market is coming to the lower level of the M.A.C. Avenue Garage, 310 M.A.C. Ave., in February 2021.
The market will enhance community life by bringing customers, local growers, producers, businesses and craft artisans together in a safe space. With a main goal of increasing patronage of downtown businesses, market customers will be encouraged to make a day of their visit to downtown. In addition to shopping for fresh, farm-grown Michigan produce and locally made crafts and products at the market, customers will be encouraged to support local downtown East Lansing businesses by shopping and dining local while out and about.
The M.A.C. Avenue Garage is located under the East Lansing Marriott in downtown East Lansing and market days are tentatively scheduled to take place from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Feb. 14, Feb. 28, March 14, March 28, April 11, April 25 and May 9. Masks and social distancing will be required and other COVID-19 safety guidelines will be in place. Additional details will be announced soon.
