The weekly Saturday market is held at the Tuscaloosa River Market on the banks of the Black Warrior River. The River Market is located at 1900 Jack Warner Parkway.



  • Main Parking: The main parking lot entrances are located at the intersections of Jack Warner Parkway at 21st Avenue and at Queen City Avenue. We recommend entering at 21st Avenue.
  • Handicap Parking: The Queen City Avenue entrance is the closest to our handicap parking section. Only patrons with proper handicap parking decals will be allowed to park in the lot closest to the building.

Two are located across Jack Warner Parkway at the Tuscaloosa Public Library and at the Mildred Warner Westervelt Transportation Museum. The others are located to the east of the River Market in the Visitor Center lot and the lot just east past the River Walk pedestrian bridge.
