City Series, Birmingham, AL: Pepper Place Farmers Market

So beautiful!  I love going to the Farmer's Market and was happy when Melanie suggested we visit Pepper Place Saturday Market, an open market in Birmingham, Alabama that combines produce vendors, arts & crafts booths, and live music.  I thought this display of tomatoes and peppers was gorgeous and asked permission to photograph some of their "edible art."  Fantastic!

In and around Pepper Place are wonderful "bricks & mortar" retail shops selling antiques (King House Antiques), furniture and design pieces (Atmosphere Home Essentials) and garden essentials (Wildflower Design).  These are the kinds of stores that make you want to rush home and change everything.  I was inspired and impressed. 

If you ever get the chance to visit this top notch Saturday market, make sure you allow enough time to shop for food and furniture!

That sounds wonderful! I also like the farmers market in Royal Oak if you live in Michigan. There are two ladies who I call the "Lettuce Ladies" and they give you three or four different kinds of lettuce:)
