Village Market is a grocery store located at 7737 2nd Avenue South in Birmingham's South East Lake neighborhood.

The store was operated by Western Supermarkets from 1998 to 2019. When that chain closed, the store was purchased by Harvest Market.

The new owners planned a $1 million renovation project. In late 2019 the Birmingham City Council approved a $200,000 direct incentive for the business from the city's Healthy Food Fund, as well as a 10-year partial sales tax abatement estimated at around $665,000.
