The City of Tuscaloosa will reopen the in-person Farmers Market at the Tuscaloosa River Market beginning on Saturday, May 23.
The open-air market will operate at 50% capacity and implement other safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including:
- Social distancing of six feet between persons will be maintained;
- No congregating between booths or in walkways will be allowed;
- No hand-to-hand contact will take place between vendors and shoppers; and
- No dogs will be allowed at the market during this time.
Additionally, the City encourages anyone who is feeling unwell or who may be at higher risk of infection to stay home.
The curbside pick-up option that began in lieu of the in-person market will continue to operate at this time as well. Customers preferring curbside pick-up should place their order in advance directly with vendors online at Tuscaloosarivermarket.com/curb-side-market.
The in-person Farmers Market accepts EBT, SNAP, WIC, and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP). Some curbside market vendors accept these payment methods as well. Customers are asked to communicate directly with the vendor about their preferred payment method for curbside pick-up.
