GIVE & GROW
Sponsors, please consider giving to the GIVE & GROW campaign; which is designed to directly benefit the farmer, grower, and producer (FGP). The West Homewood Farmers Market over the last three years has been able to raise enough funds to enable a select number FGPs to not have to pay booth fees at the market. We'd like to expand that offering by giving you a way to pay those fees directly. We're calling it GIVE & GROW. Give and watch the market GROW. Obviously, this doesn't generate additional revenue needed to grow the market but it does help the FGPs grow, saving them money, and helps us to recruit more vendors like them. We will continue to raise funds through traditional grant, sponsorship, and donation request. In addition, as the traffic continues to grow on www.westhomewood.com we will sell very affordable advertising options.

NEW MARKET MANAGER FOR 2023!
It's hard to believe the West Homewood Farmers Market is opening for our 13th Season this summer and we're excited to introduce and ask you to welcome our new Market Manager - Jessica Harris. Patrons and Vendors alike are going to love her - and, no, we're not going to ask her to wear that big 'ole goofy cowboy hat!
Jessica comes to us by way of AmeriCorps whose mission is to build community through environmental stewardship! I think we're going to adopt that mission statement! In addition, AmeriCorps provides the market with summer interns who help us make the market happen each week. We want to give a big shout-out to UAB who manages the AmeriCorps program. Be sure to say hello to Jessica this summer.

The West Homewood Farmer's Market is a family-friendly market where no alcohol is served and kids have as much fun as adults. We will have kid's planned activities again this summer as well as a good-'ole fashioned sprinkler set-up. Bring your little ones dressed in something where they can get soaked. You'll love the photos you can capture! It's simply a hose with a sprayer on the end... nothing fancy but the kids love it.
