Supporting Our Communities: Allen Street Farmers Market

Last Wednesday, members of our Mason branch staff spent the afternoon at the Allen Farmers Market in Lansing, Michigan as a sponsor of the event! GreenStone had the opportunity to connect with local residents and the producers who provide the neighborhood with fresh food products.

The first Allen Farmers Market season kicked off in 2004, was just 10 weeks long, and featured four female farmers. Since then, it has grown into a thriving weekly market that provides the neighborhood with access to fresh produce and other delicious products, a friendly atmosphere to visit with neighbors, and opportunities to engage and share diverse resources and perspectives.

Our support to thriving rural communities extends beyond providing financial services. We are committed to getting involved with the neighborhoods we serve. Big or small, GreenStone supports all agriculture, and sustainable markets, such as the Allen Farmers Market, shows the power that agriculture can have to bring people together to build rural-urban connections and strengthen communities.​

You can now find the Allen Farmers Market year-round, located at 1629 E. Kalamazoo Street, either inside the Allen Market Place building from November – early May, or outside in the parking lot on the corner of Kalamazoo and Allen Streets from mid-May through October.​
