The Farmers Market at the Tuscaloosa River Market will offer new seasonal hours beginning Tuesday, April 17.

In addition to its usual year-round Saturday 7 a.m. to noon hours, the Farmers Market will be open to the public from 3 to 6 p.m. every Tuesday. This schedule will run through Tuesday, Nov. 20. The new afternoon hours are an effort to assist farmers in reaching customers at convenient times.

Each week, vendors at TRM sell locally-produced goods ranging from in-season fruits and vegetables, meats, breads, cakes and cookies to arts and crafts. Vendors accept Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Nutrition Program and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) benefits and electronic benefits transfer (EBT) cards.

The Farmers Market at the Tuscaloosa River Market, a public service of the City of Tuscaloosa, is free and open to the public. The River Market facility is located at 1900 Jack Warner Pkwy and allows for Tuscaloosa to have one of the only year-round markets in the state of Alabama.
