The Freshest Cargo Mobile Farmers’ Market is a “farmers’ market on wheels” that seeks to address issues related to lack of access to fresh, locally-grown produce in the Bay Area. Freshest Cargo now operates in several low-income food deserts in Contra Costa County.
Fresh Approach will also provide 48 interactive nutrition education sessions at community-based organizations to promote purchasing local fruits and vegetables and the CalFresh nutrition assistance programs that will be accepted at the market.
This project is supported by a grant from the USDA through the Farmers’ Market Promotion Program.
During the Spring and Summer, we operate in Contra Costa County regions including Pittsburg, Richmond, San Pablo and Brentwood! See the past schedule below our current Winter schedule.
