Lansing City Market Parking Alerts for Customers

Plenty of FREE parking just steps away from the south Market doors

The Lansing Entertainment & Public Facilities Authority in conjunction with the Lansing City Market would like to alert all customers of parking changes that are in effect due to planned construction. Customers are still able to park in the Lansing City Market Lots adjacent to the Market building, however, overflow parking has been moved to Lot 21 just across from the south doors, near the Lansing Center. 22 parking spaces have been reserved, and are free to market patrons. If coming from Cedar Street, you can enter the lot by following City Market Drive around the bend and making a left into the lot.

Depending on the staffing of this lot there are these options:

1. An attendant is in the booth:

       a. Tell the attendant that you are “shopping at the market” and they will let you in for free.

        b. Park in one of our 22 reserved parking spots.*

        c. Cross the street and shop the Market.

2. No attendant is present:

        a. Press the button and grab a ticket – remember that you’ll need this ticket to exit, so keep it in a place you’ll remember.

        b. Park in one of the Market’s 22 reserved spots.*

        c. Walk across the street and shop the Market.

        d. When you make a purchase make sure that a Merchant validates your parking by providing you with a blue slip. All patrons will need this slip to exit for free.

        e. When exiting the lot, patrons can place their entrance slip in the machine. When prompted to pay, simply put your validation slip in the machine.

* The Lansing City Market will always have 22 spaces available in Lot 21, however if these are full and there are additional spaces in the Lansing Center lot, customers can park anywhere in that lot for free as well. For additional information, please contact the Lansing City Market Manager, Lori Mellentine at 483-7460 or email

Free WiFi always available at the Market!
