Top 10 Fab Finds at The Market 2011

A belle had a ball at the Junior League of Birmingham’s Sneak Peek last night of The Market. Attendees were treated to wine tastings by Whole Foods, scrumptious goodies like greek chicken bites, Antipasto Kabobs, pulled pork sliders and more. My favorite was the white chocolate peanut butter bites!

The Market is a shopper’s paradise with 80+ vendors selling everything from Christmas ornaments to treats for foodies. There was a silent auction, a cupcake book signing and guests had a chance to win a diamond from Bromberg’s with a $10 donation for a glass of champagne.
