** Opening Day of the East Lansing Farmers Market is Sunday, June 5
------------------------------------------------------------

Community members are encouraged to come out for opening day of the East Lansing Farmers Market’s (ELFM) 2022 season, which will be taking place this Sunday, June 5 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Valley Court Park, 280 Valley Court.

There will be a ceremonial ringing of the market bell with East Lansing Mayor Ron Bacon at 10 a.m., followed by a giveaway of free, reusable ELFM shopping bags to the first 100 customers. The East Lansing Public Library’s (ELPL) Library on the Go mobile pop-up library will also be onsite during opening day and ELPL staff will be hosting children’s story times at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Opening day live music will include Sigh Studio of Music from 10 a.m.-noon and The Dangling Participles from noon-2 p.m. The shopping checklist for opening day can be viewed here (https://cityofeastlansing.com/400/Shopping-Checklist) .

The 2022 season will run from June 5 to Oct. 30 on Sundays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Valley Court Park, 280 Valley Court. The market is rain or shine!

About the Market
The ELFM draws a crowd of approximately 1,000 visitors to Valley Court Park each week to shop for farm-grown Michigan produce and products. As a growers-only market, ELFM vendors are required to grow their own produce and/or make their own products. The ELFM is located in an inviting, open-air park atmosphere, just steps away from the MSU campus, downtown East Lansing and several East Lansing neighborhoods.

This year’s vendor lineup includes a great mix of new and returning vendors. The 2022 vendors include: 517 Coffee Company, Brewt’s, Corrion Farm & Greenhouse, The Country Mill, Dante’s Bakery, Droscha Sugarbush, El Burrito Mexicano, From Scratch Food Truck, Heritage Forge and Farm, Hickory Knoll Farms Creamery, Jenny’s Sweets & Treats, Magnolia Farms, LLC and Many Hands Farm Collective, MI Drinks, Mycophile’s Garden, MI Great Lakes Fish Co., Pregitzer Farm Market, Ralya House Beeswax Essentials, RavenCrow Roasting, River Tree Coffee Company, Sapo De Solis, Stone Circle Bakehouse, Sweet Potato Delights, Tomac Pumpkin, Wildflower Eco Farm and Wooden Show Herb Farm.

SNAP/Bridge Card & Double Up Food Bucks Benefits
The ELFM accepts SNAP/Bridge Cards at the market and allows EBT-eligible 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 farmers 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 would receive an extra $20 to spend (limited to $20 per market Sunday).

Community members can learn more about the ELFM at www.cityofeastlansing.com/farmersmarket.

** East Lansing's Annual Flushing of Water Mains to Begin Monday, June 6
------------------------------------------------------------

The City of East Lansing’s annual flushing of water mains will begin Monday, June 6. The flushing will take place between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. each weekday for approximately three weeks.

The 2022 flushing program will take place in the area east of Abbot Road and south of Lake Lansing Road within East Lansing’s City limits. View Map (PDF) (https://www.cityofeastlansing.com/DocumentCenter/View/7248/2022-Water-Main-Flushing-Map-PDF) . Remaining areas of the City will be included in future flushing activities. Inclement weather or other unusual conditions may alter the project schedule. Any changes will be posted on the City’s website at www.cityofeastlansing.com/watermainflushing.

During the program, residents within or adjacent to the project area may experience a temporary reduction in water pressure and cloudy or rusty colored water. Although the discolored water is safe and does not pose a health concern, residents are encouraged to check their water prior to doing laundry or other home projects in which discolored water could be a problem. Should residents experience discolored water; they are advised to run cold water through a non-aerated faucet, such as a bathtub or outdoor water spigot, for five to ten minutes until the water becomes clear. Residents are also advised to avoid using hot water before checking the cold water to prevent discolored water from entering their hot water heater.

Residents can visit www.cityofeastlansing.com/watermainflushing for additional information, including a GIS map that will be updated so that residents can track the water main flushing progress. Residents can contact the East Lansing Department of Public Works at (517) 337-9459 with questions.
