Farmers Markets at the Capitol

The mission of the Farmers Markets at the Capitol is to provide a thriving marketplace that showcases Michigan food and agricultural products in an effort to educate our state decision-makers on the importance of supporting farmers, ag-based businesses, and farmers markets.

We look forward to seeing you July 23, August 27, and September 24 for the 2024 season!

About the Events

MIFMA’s Farmers Markets at the Capitol are a staple of downtown Lansing’s summer landscape. The markets offer the smell of local floral bouquets, the sweet taste of vine-ripened produce, and so much more. Shoppers have a cornucopia of products to choose from including fresh produce, jams, jellies, baked goods, honey, maple syrup, meat, salsas, dips, pickled products, soaps, and more. Visitors can also take advantage of numerous food trucks throughout the market day parked along Capitol Avenue.

The market accepts Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) Bridge Cards, Double Up Food Bucks, WIC Project FRESH, and Senior Market FRESH. MIFMA is committed to ensuring that all Michigan residents have access to the fresh, local fruits, vegetables and other food products sold at the market.
