Have you heard about PEER Inc’s East Lake Mobile Market? Think Food Truck or an Ice Cream Truck, but quickly substitute offerings with fresh produce, jams, squash relish, and more. Basically, it is the East Lake Farmers Market on wheels! This initiative was made possible by a grant awarded to PEER from the USDA but also from all kinds of support/partnerships here in Birmingham. Of course, your donations/support will enhance PEER, Inc’s work in a major way, so please consider donating by clicking here. Though the East Lake Mobile Market primarily serves East Lake neighborhoods in Birmingham, Alabama, here is a list of stops in case you want to see first-hand what this Mobile Market is all about. Every Tuesday the mobile market will be at the following locations (subject to change):

And just so you know, I often make my way to East Lake UMC for a $5 lunch during the weekdays. Click on this link for directions and to download the Diner’s menu (top right on homepage). One of the main reasons I relaunched Food Revival was to spread some of the good food news I know is happening in our community! Clearly, this is some good news so please share the information with others in our community and especially those folks who live or work in East Lake!  For more information,  please contact PEER, Inc directly:
