Alabama Farmer’s Market

Labor Day weekend packed into my parents’ SUV and headed for a road trip to Alabama. Our journey took us to a farmer’s market that had all the personality and lovingness of a true Southerner. Weren’t the girls cute with their uncle Jeffrey?

We bought a set of hard wood legs from this vendor. My grandpa will be making us a piano bench with it.

All sorts of signs everywhere. Antique signs, animal crossing signs…

All sorts of antique and vintage items for sale…

I loved these bottles. They would look great on my kitchen window sill.

Tools… New or used. Auto parts. They’ve got it.

Saddles and such for horses. They had cages for animals. There were dog food, leashes and clothing also for sale for your pets.

Which lead us to the animals… Chickens, turkey, ponies, pigs, puppies galore, hamsters, birds, geese and goats.

Fresh produce. Yum. We bought bread and a ton of fruits.

And they sold guns and knives too, of course with golf balls…

And for lunch, we ate homemade ice cream. We had peach, strawberry and cherry vanilla flavors that the four of us shared. It was out-of-this-world good. And because you are in the South, the ice cream was churned by John Deere machinery.

» Tell me… What did you do last weekend? Did you take advantage of the 3-day weekend and go somewhere?

    Wow that is such an impressive market – athlough the guns and knives are quite scary! We didn’t have a long weekend here although we managed to fit in a BBQ with friends and then a family lunch on Sunday.

    Where in Alabama is this? I live in the Montg. area and would love to check it out if it is within a decent drive!

    We went to Kansas City for the weekend! My husband and I enjoyed strolling around the downtown farmers market there. Meanwhile, our kids were with Grandma and Grandpa at a kid-friendly farm for the day.

    Love your shots of the Alabama farmers market. Such character!

    Wow, I miss markets like that! We live in Germany now and I’m really missing a good old fashioned farmers markets.
