Featuring fresh local produce, sustainably sourced products, seasonal flavors that will tantalize the taste buds, and an Alabama-authentic feel that cannot be replicated, the Tuscaloosa Pop-Up Farmers Market has something for everyone! Open nearly every day of the week from April through September, the market is made up of five intimate marketplaces dedicated to reaching each of the city’s districts throughout the entirety of the growing season. These neighborhood pop-ups provide locally sourced goods and delicious options for community members in need of economic assistance and those who don’t otherwise have access to the Tuscaloosa River Market.
24 Communications was engaged to provide branding and marketing support, including a logo for the Tuscaloosa Pop-Up Farmers Market. A platinum Hermes award was presented to 24 Communications for the logo, illustrated by Avery Solt with senior graphic designer Shelton Roach. The winning logo design will be the anchor of the campaign and will be featured on trucks, billboards, t-shirts and social media graphics.
