While you can’t wander around the Tuscaloosa Farmers Market anytime soon, the city is working to make sure fresh, local fruits and veggies remain a Druid City staple while the COVID-19 pandemic is around.

The city will allow for curbside pickup at this weekend’s farmers market on Saturday from 7 a.m. to noon. Customers can arrange orders and make payments directly with vendors before the Saturday market. Orders can be picked up that morning at the Tuscaloosa River Market.

City of Tuscaloosa venue operations manager Alexis Mack said that even though you can’t pick your own groceries, customers should have faith local farmers will provide the freshest products for you.

“The Saturday market really has given all of our citizens the opportunity to develop a relationship with their farmer over the years so they really do have that trust relationship built and they can know when they call Snow’s Bend or they call Belle Meadow that these local farmers are going to go out there and pick the most beautiful produce for them,” she said.
