The Fairhope Market | A Branding Session

I love creating branding portraits for local businesses and vendors here in Fairhope AL. When the opportunity came to capture branding portraits for vendors of the Fairhope Market, I was all about it! I just LOVE being a part of this community and can’t wait to introduce you to some of the amazing people I got to meet. Plus, I can’t wait for you to see their photos!

The Fairhope Market

The Fairhope Market is a specialty grocer in Fairhope, Alabama. They offer local products and produce and specialty items, as well as organic options. I had the pleasure of working with Johnny, Tyler & Amanda to capture some branding portraits. Together, I visited several of their local suppliers to take branding photographs.  It was so much fun meeting each of these local producers and getting to learn about their processes!

Local Appetite

Local Appetite was founded in 2012 and is located in Silverhill, Alabama. Will and Karl formed Local Appetite with the belief that South Alabama was ready for higher quality locally grown vegetables.  They offer an alternative to produce being shipped from thousands of miles away. Local Appetite Growers uses hydroponic and no-till organic beds as their growing methods. They supply Baldwin and Mobile County the freshest greens and most unique vegetables available. And, they sell all of their produce within fifty miles of the farm. Their produce is on the menu in Mobile and Baldwin County’s finest restaurants and in the best grocery stores and markets. Not to mention, they also offer a subscription based Local Produce Delivery service.

Will and Karl took me on a tour of all their greenhouses. This is where they house their amazing tomatoes and specialty lettuces. They also have several rows of heirloom squash, a house of cucumbers and even a few pigs. How fun!

Scardamalia Builders

Adam handcrafted the gorgeous tree that is at the entrance of The Fairhope Market. The tree is an old live oak that has been salvaged and re-purposed – and it’s stunning! Adam is the owner of Grassroots Wood Co. They strive to salvage trees that would typically end up in land fills.

Another featured piece that is unique to The Fairhope Market is the counter top at the coffee bar. The old pine boards are salvaged from a barn once owned the Klumpp family of Fairhope. Seriously, be sure and check out Adam’s custom made cutting boards that are for sale at The Fairhope Market.

A huge thank you to all of the amazing vendors who showed me their businesses. Branding portraits are a great way to have content to share online and to connect with future customers! If you need to update your branding portraits, let’s talk!
