New Hours

It’s that time of the year when we’ll be opening the market.
Please note that our hours have changed from 1 PM – 5 PM to 9 AM –
2 PM. The season will start on May 19th through September 29th, every
Thursday, at the Gardendale Civic Center. Weather permitting, we’re
planning children’s activities every week. Starting on June 2nd, the
children’s activities will begin with the Petting Zoo, inflatable,
and story reading. On June 30th, we’re having a Veteran’s
Recognition program with Miss Gardendale Magnolia Fest 2015, Melanie
Roberts; the Marine Corps. League performing the Iwo-Jima reenactment;
Gardendale’s Tierra Leftwich singing the National Anthem; and other
guests. This function will include a fund raiser for the Birmingham VA
Blind Rehab Center. A good number of our veteran’s have problems
with blindness as they age and are not eligible for disability
benefits. They require an escort whenever they have to travel. The
funds will be used to assist these people with transportation,
lodging, and food when the veteran needs assistance through the VA.
More will be coming before our official opening, and we look forward
to seeing everyone this year.
