2012 Summit Farmer’s Market & Homewood Farmer’s Market

Urban Cookhouse will manage two farmer’s markets this summer—The Summit Farmer’s Market and The Homewood Farmer’s Market—with a dual purpose: to support local farming and to give back to the Birmingham community.

Both markets will contain a variety of vendors and growers. There will be local produce, breads, and specialty meats, as well as jewelry and customized crafts. Additionally, a cooking demo will be highlighted each week in honor of our great Birmingham chefs. 

The Homewood Market will take place every Saturday, May 12th-August 4th (excluding May 26th, Memorial weekend) from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The marketwill be located in the Soho Parking Lot in downtown Homewood, located right behind City Hall.

The Summit Market will be on Thursday evenings at The Summit Retail Center, starting May 24th-July 26th. From 3 to 7 p.m. Vendors will be selling their products to the public. I am especially excited about this one as it's hard for me to get going on a Saturday with a little one in tow. Now, I can pick her up from school, and go grab some fresh veggies, and maybe even do a little shopping while I am there!
