Woodlawn Street Market is safely in-person again for its last market of the year – featuring 50 spaced-out vendors selling hand-crafted holiday gifts, local food and more – this Sunday, December 13 from noon to 4 p.m.
“As we enter this holiday season, it was important that we be able to offer our vendors another outlet to sell,” said Woodlawn Street Market co-founder and organizer Rebekah Fox. “Not everyone has been able to transition to a virtual platform. This is also another opportunity for us, as a community, to support local as fully as we can.”
Woodlawn Street Market will follow a COVID-19 safety plan for tent set-up and foot traffic flow to ensure all vendors and visitors stay safely spaced. Masks will be required for everyone, and team members are assigned to check for compliance at each entrance as well as throughout the market.
“Not everyone has been able to transition to a virtual platform. This is also another opportunity for us, as a community, to support local as fully as we can.”
As many of Woodlawn Street Market’s 2020 events were canceled because of COVID-19, the team created a virtual market that will continue to run between in-person markets. Shoppers can buy from both new and long-time vendors at woodlawnstreetmarket.com, where new vendors are added monthly.
Online or in-person purchases made from Woodlawn Street Market vendors also qualify for REV Birmingham’s Great Receipt Race
The Great Receipt Race runs until Dec. 31.

Ever host an event where you ordered way too much food and end up with more leftovers than you can even fathom? We’ve been there too – until we learned about Magic City Harvest! Magic City Harvest is an organization working towards ending food waste & hunger in the Magic City. They acquire perishable food from schools, wholesale food distributors, restaurants, caterers, churches, event venues and grocery stores to donate to 30 community partners on the frontlines feeding the city’s hungry neighbors.
We are approaching the finish line for the 20th Street Refresh, which calls for a celebration – and you’re invited! The City Center Business Improvement District (BID), funded by downtown property owners, is partnering with the City of Birmingham and REV Birmingham to celebrate a refreshed Birmingham Green. Come join the party on May 20th from 4 to 8 p.m (with a special celebration happening at 6 p.m.)!
