Fairhope’s Fall Outdoor Farm Market

The City of Fairhope will host a Fall Farmer’s Market from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday evenings starting September 22 and ending November 10, 2016. Due to the construction behind the Fairhope Public Library, the market will be set up beside the Library in downtown Fairhope on School Street.

Fall Farmer’s Market allows growers to extend the season, and features fresh vegetables from late season harvests and area greenhouses. Like the summer market, it also offers the best of the region’s grass-fed meats, dairy, honey, eggs, and baked goods. Drop by the market at 4 p.m. each Thursday for children’s activities hosted by the Fairhope Public Library.

For general information or for information about becoming a vendor at the Fall Outdoor Farmers Market please call Paige Crawford at 251-929-1466.
