SAVE THE DATE - West Homewood Farmers Market Opening Night - with Country Artist Steven Cade



THE WEST HOMEWOOD FARMERS MARKET WILL OPEN IT'S 13TH SEASON ON JUNE 6 WITH SPECIAL GUEST AND COUNTRY ARTIST STEVEN CADE WHO WILL BE GIVING AWAY A GUITAR PRIOR TO HIS PERFORMANCE



West Homewood Farmers Market and the founder of the Giving Guitars Tour, Steven Cade, are thrilled to announce their partnership this summer to foster community through music and environmental stewardship. Giving Guitars Tour will provide live entertainment at the market, and Steven Cade will give away a guitar to a foster home before the show at the market from 6 pm to 8 pm. The market is open from 5 pm to 8 pm.

Giving Guitars Tour is a non-profit organization that aims to spread the healing power of music by donating new guitars to foster homes, schools, and hospitals across the country. Steven Cade, who is a gifted singer-songwriter, founded the organization in 2015 after witnessing the positive impact that music had on children in foster care.


The West Homewood Farmers Market's mission is to foster community through environmental stewardship. The market has been serving the Homewood community for over 13 years and has become a staple for residents and visitors alike. The market offers a wide range of fresh produce, artisanal crafts, and homemade goods from local farmers and artisans.


The collaboration between Cade’s Giving Guitars Tour and West Homewood Farmers Market is a perfect match, as both organizations are committed to serving the community and making a positive impact. Giving Guitars Tour will provide live entertainment at the market, and Steven Cade will give away a guitar to a foster home at the market from 6 pm to 8 pm.


"We are excited to partner with Giving Guitars Tour to bring music and joy to our market," said Jessica Harris, the market's new manager. "We believe that music and the arts are vital to building a strong and vibrant community, and we are thrilled to support the mission of Giving Guitars Tour."


Steven Cade added, "We are honored to be part of the West Homewood Farmers Market this summer. Our goal is to spread the joy of music and provide an outlet for self-expression for children in foster care. We are grateful for the opportunity to partner with the West Homewood Farmers Market to serve the community."


The first market on Tuesday, June 6, promises to be a night to remember, with live music, fresh produce, and handmade goods. Join Giving Guitars Tour and West Homewood Farmers Market to celebrate community and environmental stewardship.

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 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.

 

LOOKING FOR 5 INTERNS - PAID POSITION + SCHOLARSHIP DOLLARS


AmeriCorp VISTA program, managed by UAB, has awarded the West Homewood Farmers Market 5 Summer Associate positions this summer. It's a full-time, paid internship and includes some scholarship dollars as well as some other benefits. To learn more, click here.

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.
