Hueytown Harvest Farmers Market is a proud member of the state's new agricultural branding program, Sweet Grown Alabama. Open every Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon, May 2nd - September 26th, Hueytown Harvest Farmers Market is a great spot to purchase locally grown products, hear live music and enjoy activities for the whole community.
“People love the open-air market and atmosphere,” said market manager Regina Barrentine. “They love being able to come to a locally-grown market with their friends and listen to live music and hang out.”
Hueytown Harvest began in 2017, and the market has grown into a special place for families to visit with about 25 vendors each week. Market managers Barrentine and Jena Large are passionate about the market and intentionally keep the market small with the idea of quality over quantity.
”Sweet Grown Alabama farmers markets are a great place to purchase a variety of local products in one stop,” said Sweet Grown Alabama Director Ellie Watson. “We are excited to have Hueytown Harvest Farmers Market as a part of our network to help connect consumers to delicious locally grown products.”
Sweet Grown Alabama exists to connect Alabama farmers and families. The non-profit foundation helps farmers and markets promote their products through a convenient online searchable database. Consumers can locate Sweet Grown Alabama farmers and markets in their area by searching the database via zip code or by product.
“I love the directory where people can go find local products,” said Barrentine. “Supporting the local farmers matters.”
Hueytown Harvest Farmers Market is located at 2066 High School Road. The market is open every Saturday, rain or shine, from 8 a.m. - noon, May - September 26, 2020. To learn more about Hueytown Harvest Farmers Market, visit HueytownHarvest.com.
