In the Greater Lansing counties of Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham, agriculture contributes approximately $450 million each year to our local economy and more than 5,000 jobs to our residents. Economic development planning on a regional level that views the agricultural sector as an asset and supports agriculture industries will help our communities ensure their prosperity.

Lansing has several farmers' markets throughout the city in the summer months. These markets include the Allen Street Farmer's Market on the city's eastside, the Westside Farmers' Market, the Old Town Farmer's Market, the South Lansing Farmer's Market, and the year-round historic Lansing City Market located near downtown on the Grand Riverfront.
The Lansing City Market has built a brand new $1.6 million facility on the riverfront in downtown Lansing where it will continue its year round operations providing specialty items in addition to regular groceries from over 30 vendors.
