From Your Farm to the Birmingham Marketplace workshop

The Urban Food Project hosted more than 20 Alabama producers and local food advocates this week for the 'From Your Farm to the Birmingham Marketplace' workshop. The meeting was held to communicate the goals of the Urban Food Project and mission of REV Birmingham's local food distribution system. The meeting also explored Birmingham's demand for local produce.

Several local restaurants like John's City Diner, Rojo, Silvertron, Niki's West and Little Savannah, gave Alabama farmers a better idea about what to grow to meet the needs of Birmingham's vibrant restaurant community.
