The 2018 Woodlawn Street Market is showcasing Birmingham’s small businesses

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.

Remaining 2018 Woodlawn Street Market dates: 

  • Saturday, August 11 
  • Saturday, October 13 
  • Sunday, December 2 

Taking place alongside the August 11 market is Harvest Brunch, the Birmingham Restaurant Week 2018 kickoff event. [Learn more about Brunch] A specially curated Woodlawn Street Market Culinary Village with makers who create goods from cutting boards to aprons to desserts will connect the Brunch event to the normal WSM footprint on 55th Place. Come and support these August 11 vendors!

Applications to be a vendor at one or more 2018 markets are still being accepted at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/WSM2k18.  

“We’re combining Woodlawn Street Market favorites with new participants this season,” 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 all of the markets in the 2018 season!”  

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.  

“It’s hard to believe Woodlawn Street Market is in its fifth season! Since 2014, the market has provided a platform for launching and testing startup businesses for more than 350 local vendors – and we are thrilled about seeing that number grow even more this year,” said Brian Gunn, REV Birmingham’s District Manager for Woodlawn. “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. It’s a fun, family-friendly event with unique food and gifts – plus free entertainment; so, put it on your calendar!” 

Woodlawn Street Markets take place on the block of 55th Place South from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

Woodlawn Street Market community partners include Woodlawn Business Association, Woodlawn United, Dream Center, Imperial Formal Wear and Woodlawn United Methodist Church.
