Monday, May 7, 2018

The Shoppes at EastChase is proud to announce the 14th Annual Farmers Market is set to open this May. To kick off the season, the market will hold a Grand Opening on Saturday, May 12 from 7 a.m. until noon in the parking lot adjacent to Dillard’s.

Since opening in 2004, The Shoppes at EastChase Farmers Market has grown every year, and is now one of the top five largest markets in Alabama. Several popular farms are scheduled to make their return with locally grown products, including Aplin Farms, Alabama Sweet Tea Company, Leatherwood Nursery, and Penton Farms and more than 5 new vendors. On the last Saturday of each month, the Market will feature rotating Alabama makers, children’s activities, and the very popular 'Garden Cart Giveaway’ with large prizes from featured vendors.

“Our Farmers Market has become a Saturday tradition for families,” said Suzanna Wasserman, Marketing Manager at The Shoppes at EastChase. “We offer something for the entire family—whether it’s shopping, live music, cooking demonstrations or fitness options.”

The Grand Opening will feature all vendors and festivities, including live music from The Blackbird Pickers, face painting, bounce houses, giveaways and more! Shoppers will continue to find local handmade and homegrown items, such as organic produce, meats, milk, goat cheese, natural bath products, honey, desserts, casseroles, pottery and nursery plants.

The Shoppes at EastChase Farmers Market will be held every Saturday and will run through Saturday, September 29, from 7 a.m. until noon. For more information about The Shoppes at EastChase Farmer Market, contact Guest Services at 334-279-6046.
