Event Spotlight: Grand Opening of The Market at Lee Branch

“Community. . .gathering together around a cause – enjoying life together. . . come build community as you shop for fresh produce and Alabama made products.”

The Market Place at Lee Branch farmers market opens for the first time on Saturday, June 4th from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. Visitors can expect the best of locally grown, fresh produce and lots more from local farmers, vendors, and artisans. Many special events are planned for the 2016 season.

“Our growers and producers embrace the trend to bring local agriculture from farm to table, keeping more nutrients in the foods and supporting our local farmers. Most of the produce you’ll find is picked fresh the day before market! From produce to grass fed meats, you’ll meet the growers who nurtured the food your family takes home to eat.”
