The Chapel Market Update!

Hi! We’re starting to plan refreshments for The Chapel Market, so I need a HUGE favor from you today. Can you visit The Chapel Market’s Facebook page and let us know if you’re planning to attend?

Just click here: The Chapel Market on Facebook, then select the EVENTS box:


It’ll redirect you to the EVENTS page where you can then select JOIN:


I would appreciate it so much, and I’m excited to start getting our menu planned!

I also wanted to post a map and list of nearby hotels for folks who are coming in from out of town. All of these are just off I-85 in (east) Montgomery, Alabama- approximately 15 minutes from the market:



I’ve never stayed at any of them, but that’s the area where we do all of our shopping and dining out since we moved out to Pike Road last Fall.

Let me know if you have any other questions about anything, and I’ll respond back to you lickety-split! And again, thank you SO much for RSVP’ing on The Chapel Market’s Facebook page!

    I have stayed at the Sleep Inn & Suites East Chase & I highly recommend it to out of town guests! Very clean and accommodating hotel with friendly staff. Best of all its close & affordable!! Ask for the managers special! :)

    I have stayed in some of these hotels and they are good (football season spot for this huge Auburn Tiger fan). This weekend we have an away game…thank goodness:)

    This is probably a silly question, but is there a cost to come? My mom and I are coming either way, we just wanted to make sure. Thanks!

      Admission is free, and we look forward to seeing you and your mom, Kristen! 😀

    Layla- about how far from downtown Birmingham is it? And what time does it start? Trying to start planning our trip!! 😀 xo Brooke

    • Layla says

      We’re about 1 hour and 50 minutes south of downtown Birmingham according to and we’ll fire things up at 9am that day! :-)

  8. Penny says

    Yay – I clicked join yesterday. I’m already planning the Road Trip for me and a Bestie! I’m so excited about meeting you and Mary Kay Andrews…..and BONUS Vintage Goodies to claim!!

    Layla, can you or any of your friends recommend a Bed & Breakfast to stay at?

    • Layla says

      Hi Lin!
      I’m not sure of any B&B’s around here, but maybe someone reading this can offer some advice?
      Hope to see you this Fall! 😀

    would you email me more info on the chapel market? i generally take my daughters to country living fair at stone mountain…is your market at all similar? we come up from pensacola…

    • Layla says

      Hi Ginny!

      We don’t have any more info to share about the event quite yet, but we’ll be posting another update here on July 19th, August 19th, and September 19th. Our market will be very similar to (but much smaller than) the Country Living Fair. Hope to see you in October! 😀 (PS- My mom and brother live just outside Pensacola and will be at The Chapel Market, too!)

    Hey Layla

    I’ve been following you for a while now, and nothing would make me happier than to come to the Chapel Market but, alas, I live a thousand miles away and the trip just aint in the ol’ budget! But a plane ticket would be a great idea for a giveaway! :)

  12. Mary Ann says


    How far would you say Montgomery is from Raleigh, NC. I am thinking
    about making the trip – I love an adventure and would love to meet you and the other bloggers/vendors.

    Thank you

    • Layla says says 9 hours from there to Pike Road, Mary Ann. We’d love to see you this Fall if you’re up for the trip! 😀

    Hi, I don’t do Facebook but I wanted you to know that my friend and I are planning to attend. We are looking so forward to it!
