Today, all of our lives seem to move at lighting speed, but in the South, true craftsmanship – the kind that takes true time – is still highly valued. A new crop of Southern farmers, chefs and artisans is proving it by looking backward and forward at the same time. Whether it is with food, drink, furniture, jewelry or art, the past is becoming present, and old ways of doing things are the new way to live.

Nowhere is this more evident than in Alabama, deep in Dixie’s heartland, and there’s no better way to experience it than at the 2016 Southern Makers events. A fundraiser for E.A.T. South, the events bring together creatives and producers of all kinds, highlighting Alabama’s most talented chefs, artists, craftspeople, brewers, farmers and designers in a hands-on, experiential way and giving attendees the chance to discover all the cool things being made in our great state and meet the folks making them.
