Green Grocer is a mobile farmers market that is designed to travel into food desert communities to provide the fresh food options that are currently missing from the landscape. By selling fresh, healthy foods at an affordable price Green Grocer will help to alleviate food inequity by creating access. Everyone is welcome to shop at the market and we will be accepting multiple forms of payment, including SNAP/EBT.

What is a Food Desert?

Food deserts are defined as neighborhoods that do not have ready access to fresh, healthy, affordable food. Food deserts are communities that lack things like grocery stores, farmers markets, and other healthful food options.
