The Pepper Place Saturday Market is a much-anticipated weekly seasonal event, taking place Saturday mornings from early spring through late fall. The region’ s farming families converge on a lot in the Lakeview District to sell fresh vegetables and flowers, fresh-baked breads, cakes and pies, and even fresh honey. Local musicians and Birmingham’ s finest chefs join the farming community and market patrons for entertainment and cooking demonstrations. A former Dr. Pepper bottling plant, Pepper Place is also known for its shops that have made it a premier design center.
