As you’ve probably heard by now, REV has partnered with Woodlawn Street Market to put on a month long pop-up called Woodlawn Marketplace! The marketplace features 12 vendors and has everything from fresh pressed juice to handmade earrings. To give you a better look into all the goodies that are available at the marketplace, Bekah Fox is here to give you a virtual tour and tell you a little bit more about each of our very special vendors.
Be sure to come check out the marketplace from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Thursday – Saturday or 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Sunday through October 3rd. Don’t miss out on the chance to support your local makers – we hope to see you there!

Led by REV Birmingham and powered by Prosper, this initiative aims to create opportunities for Black-owned businesses by matching them with brick-and-mortar spaces where they can thrive.

One of the most legendary and storied neighborhoods of Birmingham is Woodlawn. It is a community, anchored by one of the great public high schools of Birmingham, that has produced many citizens who contributed to the life of our city and has had an impact beyond the neighborhood itself. In a short post like this true justice cannot be done to the rich heritage and legacy of Woodlawn. However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
