With nearly 70 vendors participating, the September 23 Woodlawn Street Market filled the 55th Place block. If you didn’t make it out in September, here’s a video recap of what you missed.
The market, organized by Woodlawn Business Association and REV Birmingham, continues to serve as a launching pad for up-and-coming startups in the Woodlawn community and beyond. Testing and tweaking concepts is an important step for Birmingham entrepreneurs before they move their business toward brick and mortar. For example, Chef Kimberly Brock participated in several Woodlawn Street Markets and Create Birmingham’s CO.STARTERS before opening her restaurant Bitty’s Living Kitchen in REV Birmingham’s REVeal Kitchen, a culinary business accelerator in The Pizitz Food Hall.
The last Woodlawn Street Market of 2017 will be December 2, 2017.
Woodlawn Street Market community partners include Communicating Vessels, Woodlawn United, Dream Center, Imperial Formal Wear and Woodlawn United Methodist Church.
Small Business Week is next week and the City of Birmingham, REV and its partners are celebrating with three fantastic events to help grow your business. Monday – Wednesday next week, join our partners as we, as a community, cover critical topics to support your entrepreneurial journey.
Just in time for Easter, Cassie and Wayne Bolden have opened their popular handcrafted candy concept, The Birmingham Candy Company, in REV’s REVeal Kitchen restaurant incubator space in The Pizitz Food Hall.
