The underground scene is coming to life in East Lansing.
The East Lansing Downtown Underground Market began operations in mid-February and will continue biweekly into the spring to unite local growers, producers and artisans with customers in a coronavirus-safe environment.
The market is part of the “Daytime. Nighttime. Anytime. Place Project” to help stimulate business that have been hurt by the COVID-19 pandemic. A crowdfunding campaign was launched in January for the project through Michigan-based Patronicity. The funds raised were augmented by contributions from the Michigan Economic Development Corp., the East Lansing Downtown Development Authority and the Lansing Board of Water and Light.
The market is hosted at the MAC Avenue Garage under the East Lansing Marriott in downtown East Lansing. The market will be held every other Sunday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. through May 9. Safety stipulations at the market include:
Among the list of vendors at the market include Agape Organic Farm, El Burrito Mexicano, Hickory Knoll Farms Creamery, Mi Great Lakes Fish Co. and Grand Traverse Pie Co.
