Next Tuesday, you'll likely need to stock up on the meats and produces consumed over the July 4th weekend! Make West Homewood Farmer's Market your weekly market!
Unfortunately, we had a little rain this past Tuesday and it had an impact on the turn-out. Please consider making every effort to make it out to the market each week as the farmers, growers and producers work extremely hard to prepare for you. There's a tricky balance of providing the right number of vendors and customers. If you don't have the right number and type of vendors the customers won't come. And, if you don't have enough customers the vendors will either pull-out or won't sign-up in the first place. Fortunately, we've had record numbers of market attendees over June and we hope that will continue as the trend. The market runs through the first Tuesday of August (3rd) where we will co-host the market with Homewood's rescue departments to celebrate Homewood's National Night Out. Be looking for more information on that in future post.
The West Homewood Farmer's Market features fruits, veggies, meats, eggs, micro-greens, baked goods, food-trucks, great walkable restaurants in the neighborhood, live entertainment, a sprinkler for the kids, and so much more. Don't miss out each week. The market is a great place to get to know your neighbors... even if you live across town.
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.
COVID Measures: The West Homewood Farmer's Market follows the guidance of the State of Alabama and local authorities. The market normally features over 60 vendors and we have reduced that number in half to provide a full booth space in between each vendor. Mask will not be required but you're welcome to wear them.
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 are not having kid's planned activities again this summer due to COVID but we will have 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.
