Each market will feature over 70 Birmingham makers offering everything from jewelry to food to decor. It will be located along 55th Place between 1st Ave North and 1st Ave South.

“I keep coming back to the Woodlawn Street Market because I’ve participated since its inception. The relationship and bonds, professionally and personally, created through Woodlawn Street Market and REV Birmingham have helped my business blossom. Woodlawn Street Market is like no other in Birmingham because of vendor uniqueness and its affordability to new entrepreneurs.”
