Hey Birmingham! The World Games 2022 are in full swing, and we hope you’ve had a chance to go Downtown and check out all the fun. One of our favorite parts of this experience has been the Merchant Market that is located under the City Walk. It features some of our very own Woodlawn Street Market vendors, plus some new vendors that we have loved getting to know! They are located in the City Walk area, starting at the intersection of 23rd St and 9th Ave (if you see some of our local favorites like K&J’s Elegant Pastries and Eugenes, you’re in the right place)!
Check out this video that the City of Birmingham posted featuring some of the awesome vendors you can go check out this week!
There are also plenty of food trucks, live entertainment, and other activities for you to come out and enjoy while you’re out shopping the market! Get out and show your local businesses some love – and if you’re worried about where to park, we’ve got you covered. Check out this blog post we put together with some of the best parking spots downtown (that are NOT impacted by any road closures)!
This is a once in a lifetime experience for the Magic City and you do not want to miss out on being a part of it. Tickets are still on sale for events, so you still have time to snag some if you want to check out some of the fun events TWG are hosting. Come out and join the fun!
