Katy invited us down to Bham to go to The Market at Pepper Place. She suggested we might want to plan a Saturday before the temps became unbearable. And summer in the south can be pretty hot! Grandpa and I got up bright and early on Saturday and headed to the big city. We had to make a stop at Krispy Kreme to pick up a dozen HOT donuts before heading to the Grimmlin house. Baylor associates Grandpa with Donuts so Grandpa obliges him with a box whenever we visit. After scarfing down some hot donuts we loaded up for the trip to downtown Birmingham. The Market at Pepper Place is a Farmer's Market on steroids as you will see from my pictures. This market opens in April and closes at the end of the summer. Located on the grounds of the old Dr Pepper Bottling Plant, it attracts lots of visitors. By the time we got there around 9:30, it was crowded with people, dogs, and lots of strollers, including ours that made sure Baylor and Elliott were safe with us. Margaret walked along with the adults.
So if you live near Birmingham, you might want to check out this great market. Katy and I agreed we might like to come back without the guys and kids!! And with all the samples, you will find a light lunch is all that is needed after a day at the Market.
