We’re thrilled to see Lansing reach a significant milestone this past month with the opening of Capital City Market at Michigan Ave and Larch St. This store is the latest addition to the BLOCK600 development led by The Gillespie Group. As the first grocery store in decades to appear in Downtown Lansing, Capital City Market brings an exciting new dimension to the area.

This store ends the “food desert” in the area as indicated by Pat Gillespie, President of Gillespie Group. “The need that is met by the Capital City Market for the Stadium District, downtown Lansing, and the surrounding area has been in high demand for years – access to fresh, local and affordable food,” said Gillespie.

According to Store Manager Mitch Cook, Capital City Market has a combination of fresh, local, and convenient food at prices matching those of Meijer, the operator of the store.

Within the walls of this 37,000 SF space, shoppers can find an array of Meijer and local products including bakery items, deli offerings, international foods, a Ferris coffee shop, and a liquor counter. It also stands out with open-air elements, garage-style doors that lead to more fresh produce, and a colorful mural painted by local artist Brian Whitfield.

In a short time, Capital City Market has already elevated Lansing with its unique features and generous donations to local nonprofits. To read more about everything that the new store offers to the community, check out our sources here:
