The Woodlawn Street Market fosters local businesses
One of the best parts of the market is how much support it gives to local entrepreneurs. The Woodlawn Street Market is an initiative of REV Birmingham that creates a community for business owners and customers.
“A key component to the market is welcoming folks near and far to the community we love so dearly, Woodlawn. It brings us joy and renewed energy to have people meet us at the market. We hope everyone knows and feels us when we say, ‘All are welcome in Woodlawn.'”Bekah Fox, Woodlawn Street Market Coordinator
The market is an approachable space for entrepreneurs no matter where they are in their business journey. This year, you can even expect to see one vendor, OOTO SNACKS, launching on market day! Other Woodlawn businesses like Club Duquette and Communicating Vessels participate on market days.
Even The Slutty Vegan will bring their food truck out—great news for everyone who’s waiting for their brick and mortar to open in Woodlawn.
