- Will the Market be open if it rains?
Yes! Pepper Place Market is a rain or shine farmers market.
- If it rains, will your vendors still set up like normal?
Some of our vendors have products that might damage if wet. All vendors are made aware that we are a rain or shine Market, so accommodations are made. These vendors might change their set up slightly to meet these accommodations.
- Are you still accepting applications for potential vendors?
As of May 1, 2014, our Summer Market is full. We are, however, accepting vendors to be placed on a "call list" basis. We are also now accepting applications for our Fall Market, which runs October 11-December 13.
- What is the application process and how much will it cost?
Please email email@example.com with your information, as well as any photos you may have showing your products. Information regarding booth fees will be discussed at that time.
- What is the Summer Market all about?
The Summer Market is all about Alabama-grown summer produce: blackberries, blueberries, peaches, tomatoes, beets, lettuces, summer peas, watermelons, canteloupes, okra, peppers, potatoes and more! We welcome additional local vendors to 29th Street- artisans, baked goods, ready to eat foods, farmers, woodcrafts, jewelry, custom/handmade furniture, soap makers, food trucks and so many more... In addition to our 29th Street vendors, we also add a second Music Stage, sponsored by Limbaugh Toyota Scion.
- What time do chef demos begin?
Chef demonstrations are weekly during the summer schedule (mid-May through the first weekend in October) and begin each week at 9:00 a.m. Each Saturday morning, a chef from one of Birmingham’s great local restaurants, will share an in-season, fresh and healthy recipe. You get to watch as the recipe is put together and ask questions along the way. Afterwards, sample the dish and talk to the chef! It’s a lot of fun and very informative, too! Demos are sponsored by Jim ‘n Nicks BBQ.
- When does the Fall Market begin?
The Fall Market begins Saturday, October 11. All vendors will be located in the "big parking lot". Plenty of fall produce and holiday gift items will be available each week!
*DON'T FORGET: MARKET ENDS DECEMBER 13!
