It’s Woodlawn Street Market season! Woodlawn Business Association and REV Birmingham host the popular markets that bring up to 80 local vendors and hundreds of shoppers to the heart of historic Woodlawn every other month from April to December 2018.
The last Woodlawn Street Market of the season is Sunday, December 2 – from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the block of 55th Place South. Expect lots of holiday-themed items at this special winter market. Check out the full vendor list:
This market rounds out Woodlawn Street Market’s fifth season. Since 2014, the market has provided a platform for launching and testing startup businesses for more than 350 local vendors –and that number has grown even more this year. Woodlawn Street Market gives people across the Birmingham area an opportunity to support local businesses and be part of the renaissance of historic downtown Woodlawn.
“We’re combining Woodlawn Street Market favorites with new participants this year,” said Bekah Fox, a market co-organizer and recording artist at Communicating Vessels. “We love getting to showcase the businesses that call Woodlawn home and it’s always exciting to invite Greater Birmingham to fill our streets. Woodlawn continues to grow and we look forward to seeing you at the market!”
Shoppers can find art, jewelry, clothing, children’s books and toys, fresh produce, plus delicious food – all from startup businesses that they may not have seen before. At least 10 vendor spaces at each 2018 market are reserved for first-time vendors. Market goers can also enjoy live entertainment, with dancers from all over Birmingham battling it out on the pavement.
Woodlawn Street Market community partners include Woodlawn Business Association, Woodlawn United, Dream Center, Imperial Formal Wear and Woodlawn United Methodist Church.

If you’ve been following REV for a while, you probably remember The Big Pitch Competitions we used to hold back in the day. The Big Pitch presented by PNC was essentially our own little version of Shark Tank. And a lot of your favorite local businesses that participated in this competition now have active retail storefronts that you can go check out. Let’s start with some of our finalists that are based in the City of Birmingham and see what they’ve been up to!
One of Birmingham’s many hidden treasures is the music scene downtown. The sheer volume of concert venues we have in downtown Birmingham is something most people aren’t even aware of – but it really is remarkable! There is truly something for everyone, whether you’re into the smaller, more intimate venues or the large-scale venues for those big name artists. Keep reading to check out some of the cool venues downtown Birmingham has to offer.
We’re so excited to welcome yet another new business to the Woodlawn Community! Thrive Wellness Lounge is a plant-based health and wellness store in the heart of Woodlawn owned by Tish Fletcher (a veteran Woodlawn Street Market vendor – whoop whoop)! You can swing by and check out Woodlawn’s newest addition on Tuesday – Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. It’s always a good time to support a female, black-owned local business! We talked to Tish a little bit more about her journey to opening her very own brick and mortar store. Keep reading to learn more!
