East Lansing Farmer’s Market held its annual Autumn Fest on Oct. 8. The event featured local artists, vendors, food trucks, and live music.  

Free events included cider and doughnuts, carriage rides, children’s activities, and a fire pit.

The farmers market also had plenty of fall produce and products to purchase.

Local vendor Sarah Tomac runs a fourth-generation family farm, Tomac Pumpkins.

Tomac Pumpkins grows more than  200 varieties of pumpkins and squash each year.

“We plant them in May, and then they are ready early September,” Tomac said.

The event also featured local vendors such as The Cheese People from Grand Rapids, and Beagle’s Cafe and Bakery from Grand Ledge.

Michigan State University student Katherine Leadbetter said her favorite vendor is Jenny’s Sweets and Treats from Munith.

The East Lansing’s Farmers Market is at 280 Valley Court, and is open Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. until Oct. 29.
