The Market at Pepper Place was established in 2000 to help small family farms, and provide a connection between these family farmers and the people of Birmingham, Alabama. From our beginning with a few tents in the center parking lot of Pepper Place, we have now grown to 100 tents spread across two parking lots and streets around Pepper Place
Our attendance has grown at times to over 10,000 people per Saturday at the height of the season. All of our vendors are based in Alabama, from a geographic range of up to 200 miles from The Market. Often we see three generations working the market together; evidence that our farmers markets are making a difference in the viability of small Alabama family farms.
Market offerings change with the seasons. As we progress into Summer, you’ll find wonderful bedding plants, herbs, lettuces, asparagus, and strawberries in the spring, and blackberries, blueberries, peaches, mushrooms, sweet corn and tomatoes in summer, to name a few.
