The East Lansing Farmers Market held its annual Autumn Fest at Valley Court Park on Oct. 16.

Autumn Fest featured vendors, live music, sweet treats and a fall photo booth. There was also a petting zoo, pony rides, crafts, lawn games and rock painting for children. Out of the 32 vendors who participated this year, more than 10 offered goods from pumpkins to seasonings to apple cider at Autumn Fest.

Erin Meadows, owner of Abundance Cafe, came to sell her vegan potato chowder and different types of granola. “I love to nourish people, so I love making healthy foods that you wouldn’t find at other places like vegan and gluten free options,” said Meadows. “Food that is designed to make you feel great but also tastes great.”

Bryan Grannis, owner of Uncle Hairy’s, came to Autumn Fest with his family to advertise his different rubs and seasonings. “I like to come out here to meet with the people,” said Grannis. “Coming out here lets me talk about my passion, which is hot sauce and seasonings, and there is nothing better than human contact and making an extra buck or two.”
