Thunderstorms spoiled the fun last week. This Tuesday looks good!
This past Tuesday was a tough call. We make the decision to cancel a market at noon the day of the market. The challenge was the forecast was predicting thunderstorms, which obviously can be dangerous when setting up tents, during the market set-up hours as well as during the first hour of the market. We had to call it. This Tuesday looks great; so we hope to see you there. The 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 most vendors. 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.
