ELFM to Host Spartan Appreciation Day and
UNITY PROJECT Installation on Sunday, Sept. 8

"The East Lansing Farmers Market (ELFM) will host Spartan Appreciation Day and the UNITY PROJECT installation on Sunday, Sept. 8 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Valley Court Park, 280 Valley Court. For Spartan Appreciation Day, the first 150 college students who show their college student identification card at the information booth will receive a FREE, reusable ELFM shopping bag, a $2 complimentary gift certificate to the market and downtown East Lansing business coupons.

The UNITY PROJECT installation is an interactive art project sponsored by the East Lansing Arts Commission that features a larger-than-life structure consisting of 32 posts with identifiers. Participants will be invited to tie colorful pieces of yarn to posts that reflect their identities. The yarn will intertwine with other participants’ yarn to create a web of interconnectedness."

“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. Customers at the market enjoy authentic local Michigan goods.
 

Weekly Shopping Checklist

shopping checklist is posted online each week to provide ELFM customers with a preview of what vendors will be selling at the upcoming market. 
 

Bridge Cards, Double Up Food Bucks Accepted

The ELFM accepts SNAP/Bridge cards at the market and allows customers to stretch their dollars with the Double Up Food Bucks (DUFB) program. As a result of a grant from the Fair Food Network, the DUFB program "matches" SNAP/Bridge card dollars spent at farmer's markets. Customers will receive a dollar for dollar match (up to $20) that can be spent on fresh fruits and vegetables grown in Michigan. For example, if a customer spends $20 on their SNAP/Bridge Card, they receive an extra $20 to spend at the market.
