Pepper Place

Went to Pepper Place today. What? Not familiar with Pepper Place? It consist of several blocks where the old Dr. Pepper building is in the Lakeview District of downtown Birmingham. Today the area consist of shops and restaurants and during the spring into early fall, every Saturday there is a wonderful farmers market where farmers drive to sell the fruits of their labors.  There you can find home grown vegetables and flowers, bake breads and cookies, cakes and pies,local bee products. In addition to farmers, bakers and beekeepers you can enjoy local musicians on two stages while sipping a fresh cup of coffee or enjoying a light breakfast. There is a cooking demonstration at 9:00 a.m. every Saturday morning by Birmingham's finest chefs. And that's just the market... While you're there, don't forget to check out the shops that have made Pepper Place known as the city's premier design center.

Yum, those peaches look so good. Bet they're from Chilton County.
I had not heard of this place...I remember the old Farmer's Market on Finley Avenue.
