ABOUT OUR MARKET AT ALEX BRADFORD PARK
The Bessemer Farmers Market is recognized as a Certified Farmers Market and is open on Saturdays from 8:00 AM to 12:00 Noon during the season in 2019 beginning June 1. We are located at 2 19th Street North, Bessemer, AL 35020, in Alex Bradford Park and next to Boateng's Cajun Creation Restaurant.
We will also operate the farmers market at UAB Medical West, beginning Tuesday, June 4, from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. Bessemer Farmers Market at Medical West will be open to the public, and will be located between the cafeteria and Subway Restaurant, in the hallway, on Level C.
Our vendors are all local and all of our products are grown or produced in the State of Alabama, meaning it has has not taken much time to make it from farm to market. And fresh food means that it tastes better and is better for you.
OUR VENDORS at the PARK
Without our vendors there would be no market (just as without customers there would be no market). Following is a list of vendors that have agreed to be at or market this year. We think the diversity of vendors and products will make this year's market the best in our short history.
