Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this partly-cloudy Wednesday.

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for farmers, food, and family-friendly music. Today you can see Hall and Morgan at Allen Street Farmers Market. The duo, which has been performing Americana and folk music together for over fifteen years, entertains shoppers as they peruse the selection of fresh produce and other food products.

The Allen Street Farmers Market takes place every Wednesday year-round, but today is their last outdoor market before they move inside for the winter. If you want to enjoy live music in the fresh air, this is your chance.

4-6 p.m. FREE. Allen Street Farmers Market, 1619 E. Kalamazoo St., Lansing. (517) 367-2468.
