Linn Park Farmer's Market Now Open for Business
Nancy Spinks, who runs Spinks Farm with her husband, Troy, displays a bountiful harvest of cabbage, sweet potatoes, peppers, green beans, homemade chow-chow, and more.
Louira Hambright, owner of Lou's Bakery, fills several tables with her whole or by-the-slice homemade cakes and pies.
The Linn Park Farmer's Market offers the convenience of a true farmer's market for Birmingham's urbanites and workers. Tented tables line the sidewalk near the entrance to Linn Park beginning the first Wednesday in June through the last Wednesday in August. Local musicians will be on hand to entertain you as you squeeze the peaches and smell the flowers for sale.
Since you'll be so close to the library, come in to cool off and browse the Business, Science & Technology Department for books on how to cook, pickle, or preserve your produce.
