The Lansing City Market is more than just a market! Both the market and our merchants love to put on events that the community will enjoy. Here are quite a few coming up in the next couple of weeks:
June 28th, 11 am – 1 pm
You’ve been waiting for summer, now get out and enjoy it! Pass up your sad desk lunch for a picnic on the riverfront every Wednesday in June. Just bring a bag lunch or order takeout from the Waterfront Bar & Grill and enjoy it at our picnic tables or on a blanket on the grassy river banks. Live music from Taylor Taylor will complete the relaxing, summery atmosphere! This event is kid-friendly so bring the family!
We have teamed up with St. Vincent’s Catholic Charities to collect blankets to benefit those in need. You are invited to bring a new or gently used blanket to use for your picnic, then donate at the conclusion of the lunch. Twin and full sized blankets are needed most. Queens would also be accepted. Please note: baby blankets, afghans, throws, or lap blankets are not needed. Donations are not required but very much appreciated!
June 28th, 6 pm – 8 pm
