Celebrating all things Alabama at the 2013 Southern Makers Festival.
An amazing event was held at the Union Station Train Shed in Downtown Montgomery on May 4th which celebrated Alabama and those who still use their hands to make artisan treasures from throughout the state.
Over 75 Artisans and Chefs gathered at the event curated by Goodwyn Mills & Cawood, Matter Creative Studio, and Southern Accents for the benefit of EAT South—a local non-profit whose mission is to encourage healthy lifestyles through education and sustainable food production in urban areas throughout the Southeast.
The perfect downtown day was filled with food, beverage, artisan products, demonstrations and great music. In addition, workshops from noted talents like North Alabama-based Natalie Chanin made the day one of learning as well. In the end, over 1500 people travelled from throughout the state and other parts of the country to enjoy this inaugural event which will surely become a Montgomery tradition for years to come.
