The Tuscaloosa River Market announced Thursday evening they will no longer offer the mobile market that has been in place for the last couple of years.

According to a Facebook post by the Tuscaloosa River Market, the pop-up markets have been discontinued due to a lack of participation from vendors and low shopper turnout.

The post also states that the Saturday Farmers Market will still be held each week from 7a.m. - noon at the River Market on Jack Warner Parkway.

The pop-up farmers markets began in 2020 after the city received a grant from the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Agricultural Marketing Service. Every day of the week, the market would move to a different area of the city and allow vendors to offer fresh produce and other products to Tuscaloosa citizens.
