Green Grocer

What is Green Grocer?

Green Grocer is a mobile farmers market that is designed to travel into food desert and food apartheid 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 accept multiple forms of payment, including SNAP/EBT and FMNP & SFMNP checks.

Green Grocer makes 20 market stops in 20 different neighborhoods.

Green Grocer will return to markets on April 1, 2021. Click here for the latest flyer with locations and times or check out the schedule below.

    What is a Food Apartheid?

    Food apartheids are more than the lack of grocery stores and other healthy food options in non-white and/or low-income communities. Food apartheid also points to the discrimination of communities of color when it comes to economic opportunities.

    What Food is on the Truck?

    Much of the food we sell is based on the season. Some items are available year-round. These items include vegetables like potatoes, cabbage, onions, carrots and cucumbers. We also sell some fruits throughout the entire year, including apples, oranges, bananas, cantaloupe, and red and green grapes. You can find dry goods like bread, rice and beans year-round, too.

    We are proud to partner with local farms to offer fresh produce. When it is in season, we sell home-grown corn, zucchini, yellow squash, slicing tomatoes, grape tomatoes, eggplant, collard greens, kale and a variety of peppers, including cubanelle, poblano, hot banana, and jalapeno peppers.
