The Farmers Market

at the Tuscaloosa River Market

A Public Service of the City of Tuscaloosa

Curbside Farmers Market this week! Orders due by Thursday for most vendors. http://www.tuscaloosarivermarket.com/curb-side-market

In response to health and safety restrictions enacted by the Alabama Department of Public Health in response to COVID-19, the City of Tuscaloosa is hosting a curbside pick-up Farmers Market at the Tuscaloosa River Market on Saturday, April 4 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. The goal is to offer this program in lieu of in-person farmers markets for the duration of COVID-19 in-person gathering restrictions. Customers will arrange orders and make payments directly with the vendors in advance of the Saturday market. Orders can then be picked up in the parking lot adjacent to the River Market between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Saturday. To view a list of participating vendors and find contact information for placing orders, customers should visit http://www.tuscaloosarivermarket.com/curb-side-market. No purchases will be allowed on-site on Saturday. Here is how our contactless curbside market will work: Customers will drive to the 21st Ave. entrance of the River Market parking lot and drive east towards the River Market. Once they reach the parking lot adjacent to the River Market, they will be met (at an appropriate social distance) by a River Market staff member. They will ask them from which vendor the customer purchased goods. The staff member will then assign a parking spot to the customer and the vendor will bring the goods to the customer's vehicle and place the order in the back. Since all product must be pre-ordered and prepaid, no contact will be necessary and no day-of purchases will be allowed. All vendors and staff will be wearing gloves, using sanitizer, and maintaining the 6 foot distance.
