The Freshest Cargo Mobile Farmers’ Market is a “farmers’ market on wheels” that addresses 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 also provides interactive nutrition education sessions at community-based organizations to promote purchasing local fruits and vegetables and the CalFresh nutrition assistance program that is accepted at the mobile farmers’ market.
This project is supported by a grant from the USDA through the Farmers’ Market Promotion Program.
For more information on the customized Freshest Cargo vehicle, download our specifications guide.
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. If you have suggestions of where the Freshest Cargo program should operate, please contact email@example.com.
