City of Mobile Officially Opens Market in the Park this Season


April 27, 2018

Mobile, Ala.-- Opening Day for Market in the Park is this Saturday! The City of Mobile's Certified Alabama Farmers Market is officially opening this season beginning April 28th through July 29th from 7:30 am until noon each Saturday in Cathedral Square.

Your favorite farmers and artisans are offering fresh produce, baked goods, jellies and jams, locally harvested honey, handmade soaps, eggs and organic meats and more. In celebration of National Tai Chi Day, Mobile's International Shaolin Temple students will also be leading exhibitions during Saturday's market.

The afternoon Market In The Park, located in Lavretta Park on Old Shell Road, will open every Thursday between May 31 and July 28 from 3 to 6 pm.

"Make plans to come out to shop fresh and shop local," said Mayor Stimpson. "The farmer's market is the next step towards creating a permanent place for citizens and visitors to buy local goods, the one feature Downtown Mobile currently doesn't offer."
