Hueytown Harvest is all about creating a community that is resilient through the practices of eating healthier and being more active. They do this by supporting local farmers that sell farm-fresh produce in an efficient and accessible manner.

The best part—they’re open every Saturday rain or shine. Support local!

Here’s why you should grab your Alabama-grown fruits and veggies at Hueytown Harvest.

1. Everything is local

From local farmers to Birmingham food trucks, this market strives to only promote local goods. Not only are you helping the community’s economy, but you are eating more nutritious foods by simply buying locally.

2. Socializing Safely

A great way to promote a healthy lifestyle is socializing! In the past few years, a lot of people have been staying inside more and neglecting community engagement.

If you’re looking for a way to socialize safely, then this market has you covered. Since the market is outdoors there is room enough for social distancing, while also enjoying a communal space.

3. Activities for all ages

No matter your age, there is something that you can do! The market will include a children’s tent where all types of fun activities will be happening. Here are some events for kids you don’t want to miss:

  • Reading in the Park: All children who come out to play get FREE homemade Sunbutter Breakfast Cookies
  • Muddy Puddle Days: Wear your PJs and rain boots to splash around on rainy days.

Every other Saturday, they’ll be hosting a yoga class that’s easy enough for those 60+. Yoga is a great way to keep your body in motion while promoting mental clarity. They’re also working on hosting a Blue Zone Tent with healthy cooking demonstrations and educational talks.

4. Local Social

Local Social is Hueytown’s latest community engagement effort. You can expect to see this event every first Friday from March 5 to August 27, 2022. Join for live music, local produce, local vendors, food trucks + shopping.

5. It’s FREE

From the yoga class to the cooking demos, everything is free to the public. The local produce isn’t free, but it’s affordable, which is a plus.

Support local, Bham!
