The Market at Pepper Place is piloting a Drive-Thru Farmer’s Market on Saturday, March 21, from 7 a.m. to noon. Customers can pick up their pre-ordered and pre-paid goods during this time. There will be no sales or payments on Saturday – pick up only.

Based on the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Jefferson County Health Department, (JCHD) Pepper Place can safely support Alabama farmers and the community. The Drive-Thru Farmer’s Market will serve as a “contactless” model that will allow farmers to continue selling directly to customers. This model minimizes any need for physical contact as social distancing is prioritized. Orders and sales will be made by the customer directly to the farmer online.

Pre-purchased items will be delivered directly to the customer’s vehicle. Farmers will wear gloves while handling pre-purchased goods, so that customers will remain in their vehicle at all times.
