A couple of months ago I read a piece in the local paper, Montgomery Advertiser, that was about the oldest farmer’s market in Alabama. Having only moved to the area one year ago, I had never heard of the place known as the Montgomery Curb Market. My wife knew of it and had shopped there several times in the past when visiting her folks in Montgomery. She wanted to go again so I thought I would tag along and get a couple of photographs.
The market is located at 1004 Madison Ave, Montgomery Alabama. It got its start in the 1920’s, and moved to this location in 1947. It has thrived at this location for over 65 years!
Inside you’ll find a few flowers, and a bunch of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Everyone is very friendly and if you don’t see what you want, just ask. They’ll be sure to tell you if another vendor may have it.
One important thing to remember, bring cash. Nothing else is accepted.
If it can be put up in jars, you will probably find it. This booth had it all!
Wild honey? Yup, they have it.
Clanton peaches? They have those too, and bunches of them!
We enjoyed shopping there. We went on July 5th and there were only about 20 or so vendors there. It was nice though because it can really get crowded from what I am told. I had a little more room to get some pictures. We will definitely be going back.
