Woodlawn Street Market is a vibrant celebration of community, creativity, and local entrepreneurship. This month’s market is no different, and visitors can expect a wide range of food trucks, local makers, and live music on 55th Place South, October 14th, 2023.

At its core, the Woodlawn Street Market is a platform for small businesses to showcase their talents and products. From handmade jewelry to locally sourced produce, you can find a wide variety of items that highlight the creativity and craftsmanship of the Birmingham community. Among these talented individuals is none other than Jonathan Westbrook, fondly known as Jon Jon, the majority owner of the Broncho Food Truck. This new Magic City food truck made its debut back in August and will be returning for this weekend’s market.

Jon Jon’s journey began on the West Coast in California, and, although his sights were initially set on a career in pharmacy, fate had different plans for him. His passion for food ignited when he started working at Hero Doughnuts. There, an intriguing connection between the compounds in food and pharmaceuticals piqued his interest, and he hasn’t looked back. Now, Jon Jon wears multiple hats, working as a caterer and at the Woodlawn Marketplace. With over a decade of experience in the food scene, he decided it was time to embark on a new adventure by purchasing his own food truck.

Broncho, named after Jon Jon’s favorite band, specializes in crafting sandwiches infused with beer. From the beef-heavy Cowboy Panera, a mouthwatering bread bowl filled with sloppy joe and brisket, to the delicious Modelo Jerk Chicken Sandwich paired with picnic fries, and the enticing Coors Banquet Chili – these are just a few of the options available at this weekend’s street market.

Not only has Jon Jon lived and worked in the Woodlawn community, but he has also invested significant time and effort into its growth. One of his earliest ventures with his truck was participating in the Woodlawn Street Market, a decision he appreciates to this day.

“The Woodlawn Street Market is very accessible for my small business. It’s been a valuable learning experience,” said Jon.

Supporting local businesses like Jon’s is what makes the Woodlawn Street Market more than just a market; it’s a place for entrepreneurs to promote their business and be seen in Birmingham. So, mark your calendars for October 14th and join us at the Woodlawn Street Market to savor the tastes, crafts, and stories of Birmingham’s small business ecosystem.
