When breakfast and lunch join forces, it’s a beautiful thing. And when 10 Birmingham restaurants use farm-fresh ingredients grown right here in Alabama to create special off-menu brunch fare, it’s something you won’t want to miss. Welcome to 2017 Birmingham’s Harvest Brunch festival – the final event of a delicious 2017 Birmingham Restaurant Week season!
Birmingham Restaurant Week is bringing together some of the city’s best brunch restaurants this Saturday to serve up dishes that amplify the mouthwatering flavors of local farmers’ produce. Enjoy live jazz music as you savor your Harvest Brunch samples and sip brunch beverages we all love – cold brew coffee, Bloody Marys, Mimosas, beer and wine.
Each Harvest Brunch vendor will be serving samples created from the fruits (and vegetables) of REV’s Urban Food Project farmers’ labor. On a sign at each tent, the story of each specific plate’s produce star – from Alabama farms to your fork – will unfold.
Drinks will be available at our cash bars: hot, iced and cold brew coffee from Red Diamond, wine tasting from The Wine Group and Alabama Crown, beer from Avondale Brewing Company, and cocktails from Coopers Craft.
Proceeds will benefit the Urban Food Project, which assists in making sure the freshest ingredients find their way to Birmingham grocery stores, corner stores and dinner tables, giving residents (and Harvest Brunch guests) access to healthy, locally sourced food.

This fall, the REV team is doing some new REV things, with a demonstration project designed to prove and improve downtown Birmingham’s market for more retail.
I believe that Birmingham is still missing something important—something that inspires people to experience downtown on foot, that can tell the story of our city and its cultures.
