The Lansing City Market is an urban city market located in downtown Lansing, Michigan. The market is located along the Grand River and Lansing River Trail, and is west of Cooley Law School Stadium. The current $1.6 million structure opened in January 2010.[2] Merchant space ranges from 80 square feet (7 m2) to over 800 square feet (74 m2).[3]

History[edit]

The original Lansing City Market opened in 1909 at an adjacent site north of the current city market.[4] The building was demolished in April 2010 to allow room for a new mixed-use development.[5]

An episode of Food Network's Food Court Wars was taped at the City Market on March 19, 2014.[6]
