My family and I checked out Local Source Market & Grocery in 5 Points South yesterday and we liked what we saw: loads of fresh, local Alabama produce, frozen grass-fed meats from Sylacauga and goods from Alabama makers all for sale in a warm and inviting space.
Local Source Market & Grocery is conveniently located in 5 Points South
You’ll find the shop at 2009 15th Ave S, in the same location as Near to Me CBD and around the corner from Zydeco. On-street parking was easy to find right in front of the shop. We even spotted a pirate in the storefront window next door.
Alabama-grown produce galore
I don’t know about you, but the pandemic sure has made me want to support our local farmers even more than before.
It was so comforting walking in and seeing produce and other offerings from local farm such as these:
- Ireland Farms from Alpine
- Marble Creek Farmstead from Sylacauga
- Mountain Sun Farms from Mentone
- Southern Fresh Produce via Southern Organics
- BDA Farm from Uniontown
- Hamm Farms in Cullman
- Habersham Farms in Mentone
- Wrights Farm in Talladega
- Grandview Farm in Montevallo
- Belle Meadow Farm in Tuscaloosa
We’ll definitely be stopping in regularly because tomato sandwiches are calling my name.
Local Source Market & Grocery has local meats + can thaw them for your dinner
Local Source has beef, chicken and pork from Marble Creek Farmstead. If you know you’re cooking say, two pounds of chicken breasts at dinner, all you have to do is call in, tell them what you want, pay for it over the phone and they’ll thaw it out so it’s ready for you to pick up on the way home. Sweet, huh?
If you’ve been wanting to get some grass-fed and pasture-raised non-GMO-fed meats grown and processed just down the road, Local Source Market & Grocery has you covered.
