The Best Of Birmingham – Pepper Place Market

Almost every Saturday during the spring and summer, Tina and I make the trek into Birmingham to Pepper Place Market. It’s a place where people gather on Saturday mornings to experience what I really think is the best of Birmingham.  The best local farmers, artists, craftsmen and musicians set up tents at the old Dr. Pepper bottling plant, sell fruits and vegetables, showcase their art work and play some mighty fine music from a variety of genres. There is also a smattering of garden shops and antique stores that surround Pepper Place. Be are some photos of a recent visit. If you live in Birmingham and have never been, shame one you! If you ever pass thru Birmingham on a Saturday morning, stop by. You’ll be glad you did!
