Beginning during the early heat waves of Spring, Birmingham folks flock together on Saturday mornings to enjoy fresh, locally grown produce and celebrate the growing sustainability factor Birmingham has to offer. I cannot explain to you the feeling of knowing there are so many people that love our planet and cherish the nutrients it provides! I sound like such a tree-hugging hippie, but my heart swells with pride when I see other people taking ownership in our ability to be sustainable, even in a city like Birmingham! Located in Pepper Place, the quaint streets are lined with white-topped tents that shield the pride and joy the locals put on display.
This past weekend I took two of my best friends, Kelsey and Sydnee, to show them how precious this Saturday morning tradition is! Needless to say, it was 92 degrees and PACKED, but we still had a blast. I obviously brought back my jar for a $5 tea from Piper & Leaf. This time I decided on a delicious honey-suckle flavor. It was unreal. The heat was way too much to handle, but the tea saved my life… and my mood. Syd opted for a cup of freshly squeezed lemonade… and boy was it fresh. There is just something so comforting and charming about seeing the lemons squeezed directly into your drink! We also treated ourselves to a $3 sausage biscuit from Monroe Sausage. The sausage was smoked to perfection and strategically placed between two fluffy biscuit halves to compliment my honeysuckle tea for an amazing breakfast experience.
If you have yet to make your way to this old-fashioned, southern attraction, be sure to stop by one Saturday! Pets and children are welcome 🙂
