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.
