Frequently Asked Questions

We’re an outdoor farmers market open every Saturday beginning mid-January to mid-December.
The first 12 weeks of the market are smaller markets featuring Alabama-grown winter produce and locally made home essentials.
Because we’re an Alabama certified farmers market, this means all items are grown, raised, and made in our state.
You’ll see our market ebb and flow in the number of vendors we have each week. The market size mimics the Alabama growing seasons.

The spring and summer growing season is when we have the most weekly vendors – about 80 per Saturday!
Check our Events page to see the upcoming vendor lists so you can better plan your shopping.

Please visit our Apply page for all information and details.

Yes and no: Market vendors know we’re a rain or shine market and do their best to have a “rain plan”.

However, some vendors have items sensitive to rain and their product might be damaged by inclement weather.

Farmers and ranchers will be at the market even if it rains, because their items aren’t weather sensitive.
