VENDOR SPOTLIGHT: YOURS TRULY CYNTHIA'S

Cynthia, the mastermind behind Cynthia's Cinn'EM' a Roll, began her sweet journey back in 2018 from the comfort of her own kitchen. Since then, her delectable cinnamon rolls have become a cherished favorite among her family, satisfying their sweet cravings on every special occasion and family gathering. Cynthia's culinary talents extended beyond her own kin, as she generously shared her creations with others. Her cinnamon rolls first made their appearance as a heartfelt gesture for the hardworking first responders at the children's hospital's emergency room. Encouraged by the overwhelming response, Cynthia's rolls became a sought-after treat at various community events, such as the Ensley Community Event and the Tractor Supply Farmer's Market. Soon enough, her delectable rolls became a staple for her beloved family and friends.

As Cynthia's popularity soared, she ventured into spreading her sweet delights to others, thus earning her the moniker "Send'EM a Roll." The name perfectly captures the essence of her mission to share joy and scrumptiousness with those beyond her immediate circle. Expanding her repertoire, Cynthia introduced a diverse range of flavors to tempt taste buds far and wide. Whether you're a cinnamon roll enthusiast or simply seeking a delightful treat, Cynthia's Cinn'EM' a Roll promises to deliver a blissful experience.



 



Last week, the joyous laughter of children filled the air as they immersed themselves in the delightful children's area at our market. We had so much fun watching the children joyfully complete the scavenger hunt which was a rewarding experience in itself. The enthusiasm and satisfaction radiating from their smiles are a testament to the effort we put into creating a captivating and unforgettable market atmosphere. Building on that success, we have planned an array of exciting activities catered specifically to our young visitors, making this upcoming week even more remarkable. Of course, the beloved sprinkler will return, much to the delight of the children, as well as other activities to keep your kids smiling.


So, gather your loved ones and join us for an enchanting week of discovery, laughter, and connection. Let the children's excitement become infectious as they explore the wonders of our market through thrilling activities. We cannot wait to see the delight on their faces as they embark on the scavenger hunt adventure. Make sure to mark your calendars and join us for an extraordinary week at the West Homewood Farmer's Market!

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 8 pm. The market features a nice selection of fruits, veggies, meats, cheeses, eggs, micro-greens, and 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.

 

WAYS TO SUPPORT THE FARMERS MARKET


Vendors can apply to the West Homewood Farmer's Market 2023 Season. 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.
