Lehman's Pizzeria Grand Opening

This Friday, Woodlawn joins in celebrating the opening of another new business. Lehman Harris is hosting a ribbon cutting for his new spot, Lehman’s Pizzeria! Everybody come out and enjoy some delicious pizza!

Woodlawn Street Market

All of this is in time for our next Woodlawn Street Market this Saturday, October 16th, from 10am to 4pm! Make plans to “Meet us at the market” where you can eat lunch, shop all kinds of goods and support our local makers!

It’s also a great chance to visit with some of our Woodlawn Business who open their doors wide on market days: @clubduquette @thewood_al

Magic City Mural Fest

While you’re hanging out in our neck of the woods, be sure to check out “The Way”. Blank Space Bham, with the support of Jason Avery and incredible sponsors like The Woodlawn Foundation, transformed one of the underutilized alleyways in our historic business district. With the skilled hands & vision of several female artists it received an enormous amount of love last week during the Magic City Mural Fest. It is a must see.

Commonplace Woodlawn

Speaking of art, our neighbors at Commonplace Woodlawn (@commonplacewoodlawn) are hosting an Open House featuring 10+ exceptional artists. Both Saturday & Sunday (Oct. 16-17) from 12-5pm you can pop in to view their work and explore the space!

Wrap up the weekend with some yoga

Round out the weekend with a solid self-care Sunday compliments of Sacred Body Fitness. Jamella Stroud continues in bringing her donation-based community Yoga class to the Marketplace every Sunday at 2:30!
