I’m in dire need of a vehicle for myself and I’m able to spend $1,000 at the most! If I can get under that , I’d be thrilled if the car was gonna last me more then a couple months !! I am able to buy the car when one is made available for me to do so !! So if anyone has any suggestions on where I can look for one in that price range or knows someone who’s selling a car that meets this criteria then plz DM me ASAP as I’m in a bind without having transportation and it’s preventing me from living my best life and starting my career! So this is serious to me and my intentions are good and I hope to negotiate on a professional level with a respectable human being like myself !! Thank you for reading!
We are so excited to be connected to these women who are making brave and bold choices in their lives in the Women's Worth program.
Great lessons at Women's Worth progrm
Please come out and support our partner. They do amazing work!
So excited about this new program and partnership!
It's getting close, people!!! Don't miss this one. Just wait 'til you see the menu!
Exciting opportunity

East Lake Market is a project of P.E.E.R., Inc., a 501(c)3 organization which aims to empower the thriving, diverse community in the eastern area of Birmingham through resources for healthy living, learning, and working.

P.E.E.R., Inc. was founded in 2005 by Sally Allocca in response to inadequate access to nutritious foods and other resources for healthy living in the South East Lake neighborhood and surrounding areas. Today, we operate five programs that bring people together for healthier living, learning, and working.

Operating as usual


Strawberry treats? Let's go with YES. Come to the East Lake Market Saturday, May 7, and get yours. 8 a.m.-noon.


Strawberry Festival! Saturday, May 7, 8 a.m.-noon.

Legend? Folklore? Truth? They all factor into the story of John Chapman. March 11 is "Johnny Appleseed" Day. He is reputed to be a genuine and dedicated professional nurseryman known for his generous nature, his love of the wilderness, his devotion to the Bible, his knowledge of medicinal herbs, his harmony with the Indians and his eccentric nature.


It's Fat Tuesday! Are you eating pancakes today?
