East Lake Farmer’s Market will be open every Saturday 8 am- 12 pm from May 3 through October 11 at the corner of 2nd Avenue South and 78th Street South. You can get fresh produce from local farmers all summer long with East Lake Fresh Market Baskets.

Proceeds from the Fresh Market Baskets support our Senior Market Basket Program which provides produce free of charge to Birmingham area low-income seniors.
