Hoover residents shop for produce at the Ross Bridge Farmers Market.
A farmers market is back at Ross Bridge this summer for its second year offering products such as fresh produce and baked goods, as well as a wide range of activities and entertainment.
The Ross Bridge Farmers Market is open each Friday through Aug. 19 from 4 to 8 p.m., said market organizer Lyndsi Hughes.
The market is near the Ross Bridge Welcome Center at 2101 Grand Ave. in Hoover on the green space near the neighborhood’s front entrance.
The market “provides the opportunity for the Hoover community to get to know and support small family farms and local businesses in a fun and inviting atmosphere,” Hughes said last year.
Items offered include specialty desserts, artisanal crafts and handmade bath and body products.
There is also live entertainment, food trucks for dinner and dessert and kids’ activities, including face painting and a bounce house.
“We want people to come and bring picnic blanket, let their kids play and enjoy summer Friday afternoons,” Hughes said.
Vendors include Southern Oaks Farms, Smith Heritage Farms, George Family Farms, Sprout and Pour, Garden Honey Bee, Dayspring Dairy, Bena’s Bones, Ivory Leshore’s Gourmet Bread Pudding, 5ive Oaks Pepper Jelly, Asher Riley and Bare Naked Noodles.
The market opened June 3.
