THE 2016 CHILDREN'S TENT IS KINDLY SPONSORED BY ALABAMA WALDORF SCHOOL

During summer months of The Market, beginning in mid-May, the Alabama Waldorf School (AWS) hosts and sponsors a Children's Tent each Saturday morning. AWS brings fun, farmer-related and nature-inspired activities for children of all ages! In addition, complimentary "Fruit Shoots", courtesy of Buffalo Rock Company, are also available at the Children's Tent. 

This summer, a special event called Makers Village is being held at Pepper Place on Saturdays, adjacent to The Market, and features Birmingham's Creative Montessori School. Children can enjoy getting their hands dirty and learning more about planting seedlings. 

Birmingham's premiere chess school, The Knight School, brings their students and gear to The Market on Saturdays in June and July. Following the weekly Chef Demonstrations, children can learn and play games of chess. Market shoppers can also have fun watching live chess matches between students. All children are encouraged to jump in at any time during the match - no chess experience required!
