First Market Day at Pepper Place

The Market opened a couple of weeks ago but this is my first chance to get to Birmingham. I’m so glad I came out today! It was beautiful weather and the place was hopping!

This is my 5th year making bi-monthly trips to Pepper Place for the spring, summer, and fall. It has changed a lot over the years. Here are a few observations:

  1. HUGE emphasis on organic and non-GMO. Those farmers who practice organic gardening are heavily promoting that and I’m so glad they are.
  2. Prices are comparable, organic or not. There wasn’t much difference from farmer to farmer.
  3. Dogs everywhere. I think more people come to show off their dogs than buy food. By 10:00am it was beyond ridiculous. I saw more people walk away from this amazing market with NOTHING in their hand but a coffee cup and a leash. See and be seen in the dog world. It used to be cute. Now it’s ridiculous.
