GIVE & GROW: SUPPORTING LOCAL FARMERS, GROWERS, AND PRODUCERS THROUGH THE WEST HOMEWOOD FARMERS MARKET
The GIVE & GROW campaign 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 money 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 AmeriCorp who's mission is to build community through environmental stewardship! I think we're going to adopt that mission statement! In addition, AmeriCorp provides the market summer interns who help us make the market happen each week. We want to give a big shout-out to UAB who manages the AmeriCorp program. Be sure to say hello to Jessica this summer.
The West Homewood Farmer's Market will be open this summer on Tuesday nights from 5 pm to 8pm. The market features a nice selection of fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, eggs, micro-greens, baked goods, as well as a large selection of dinner options some come, shop, and have dinner while you're listening to the market's live entertainment.
Check-out our Interactive Vendor Map below. Know who's coming to the market and where you can find them. The market is located at 160 Oxmoor Road, Homewood, AL 35209 nestled right in the center of the West Homewood neighborhood and parking is very easy. If there are no spots in the market's parking lot try the many lots in the surrounding area. Also, please do not park on both side of the neighborhood streets.
Get ready to shop for every kind of vegetable and fruit from Alabama's best local farms. Many times the items you're buying are picked that very morning. Come learn straight from the farmer or producer themselves. You won't find a better experience in stocking up for the week.

The West Homewood Farmer's Market is a family-friendly market where no alcohol is served and kids have as much fun as the 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.
