On Saturday, May 14th, Council President Pro Tem Crystal Smitherman will be launching a new healthy food initiative – The District 6 Pop-up Farmer’s Market.
These markets will be held every second Saturday of the month from May to October and are a great opportunity for residents to connect with local vendors.
Saturday’s District 6 Pop-up Farmer’s Market will be held at Memorial Park (524 6th Ave. S Birmingham, AL) from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
“In addition to recruiting grocery stores and other retailers that offer healthy food options, we are trying to get creative with how our communities can access fresh, healthy food,” Smitherman said. “These markets also offer a chance for local vendors and farmers to connect with the people in our community and build relationships.”
