The Wall Street Journal paid a visit to Birmingham for a delicious look at a long weekend. Mentioned alongside such Magic City landmarks as the Civil Rights Museum and Saw’s BBQ was our very own corner of Birmingham.
“The Market at Pepper Place showcases local growers, bakers, chefs and such. The Birmingham Candy Company, for one, makes everything from scratch (2829 2nd Ave. S, pepperplacemarket.com). Across the parking lot is Southern Living-alum Charlie Thigpen’s Garden Gallery, with an artful assortment of planters and sculptures (2805 2nd Ave. S, charliethigpensgardengallery.com).”
Not only is this article great—and well deserved!—publicity for Birmingham but it’s also an excellent itinerary for a long weekend.
