A meeting with growers, vendors, city leaders, market crew and other guests will be held at Good Shepherd Church in Gardendale (across Highway 31 from the old flea market) on Feb. 15, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. The meeting is open to the public for anyone interested in the Market.
Despite the heavy rain this morning, the Gardendale Farmer’s Market is indeed open this afternoon, until 5:00 p.m.
New and exciting things are in store for the Gardendale Farmers Market!
• Amanda Stott from Tiki Bar Soap will have a booth selling homemade bath salts, lotions, and fragrant, non-fragrant and oil essence soaps, beginning this week.
• Mr. Bill Woodard will be returning, by popular demand, to sharpen knives and scissors on August 9th, weather permitting. He does this as a Christian Outreach for Mountain Chapel United Methodist Church in Vestavia. All his offerings will go towards their Mission Fund. Suggested donations are $4.00 for knives and $4.50 for scissors.
Due to the threat of afternoon rain and thunderstorms, the Gardendale Farmers Market will not be held today. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Last week, you told us you preferred the Farmers’ Market at the Civic Center, so we’re making it our new home! Come join us every Thursday, 1-5, in the yard in front of the Gardendale Civic Center for all your fresh produce needs.
Hello, Farmers Market fans!
This is a heads-up that this week (June 21), the Market will be held across the street from the new location, in the yard of the Gardendale Civic Center (click for map). Next week, we’ll be back in the same parking lot we normally are.
Also this week, stop by the Alabama Partners for Clean Air exhibit for information on air quality in the Birmingham area.
Coming up in July, we’ll have the return of a popular Market feature: the knife-sharpening booth! Right now, the date is tentatively scheduled for July 19th or July 26th. Watch this space for the announcement of the final date.
