Our Role and Responsibility

We listened to our farmers, who told us they need more ways to sell their fresh produce to customers during this peak harvest season. Our team has worked hard to put a plan together that offers access to fresh, Alabama-grown food, while keeping our farmers, shoppers, and neighbors safe during the pandemic. In order for this plan to succeed, we’re requiring all customers and vendors wear face masks while at the market.

As a Certified Farmers Market, we are classified as an essential business in the state of Alabama. The Market will continue serving our community and farmers as we’ve done for the last 20 years! The Hybrid Market plan includes policies prioritizing your safety while shopping at Pepper Place.

Your health is important to us. We are adhering to all CDC recommendations as well as those set forth by state and local authorities. We continue to monitor the situation, will continue to adapt our program as new needs arise.

We appreciate the community support you’ve shown our local growers this year and look forward to seeing you at the market!

About The Market

A Community-Focused Mission

The Market was established in 2000 in response to a growing need to connect family farmers and the people of Birmingham. In that time we’ve grown from a few tents in a parking lot to welcoming more than 300,000 visitors annually.
