“Great place to get nuts before the game!”
Review of Peanut Depot

Peanut Depot
Ranked #2 of 19 Shopping in Birmingham

They have the best nuts in town (actually I dont know of another place). They have roasted, and boiled! My vote is for the cajun boiled. I believe they only accept cash, but don't worry the prices wont break your wallet... Go early on Sat because they close around noon and I don't think that they are open on Sundays! Worth a try!

This is an interesting little spot, I had hopes that it was going to be something more. Nice stone street in front. Small, open store front. Interesting old peanut roasting machines.

Cheap and very delicious to eat these fresh, roasted peanuts. You ca buy a pound or 100 lbs.

Somehow I was expecting to see some just a little more though.
If you are in the area, you might want to stop by. But I wouldn't make a special trip downtown to go again (unless I was really craving peanuts).

The Peanut Depot is WONDERFUL!!! A great stop for visitors, and a great source of absolutely fresh, delicious peanuts.

The Peanut Depot has been operating in the same location for 99 years. It's in an old building with nothing but peanuts and hopeful pigeons on the pavement outside. (They keep some shelled peanuts for children to feed to the pigeons.)

You can get peanuts fresh roasted (plain, salted, cajun) or boiled (salted and cajun). It's one of the Birmingham highlights for most of our guests.

The peanuts come in all amounts, very cheap. You can also have them packaged in little burlap sacks or a decorated can for gifts. Plus, there are T-shirts for sale.

The Peanut Depot is located on a picturesque brick-paved street in the heart of downtown, not far from attractions like the Civil Rights Museum and the Alabama Theatre, and a straight shot from the Art Museum.
