|From The Mobile Market's Facebook page.|
In D.C., food deserts will be served by a farmers market on wheels. This takes the food truck concept to a whole new level.
The Mobile Market -- yet another program launched with Kickstarter funding -- is a 28-foot retrofitted school bus selling fresh fruit and produce at below-market prices to under-served communities. The bus, lovingly named "Gertrude," began rolling into neighborhoods this month and will keep on movin' on through Oct. 31.
DCist has this post, "Why Go to a Farmers Market When the Farmers Market Can Simply Come to You?" about the project by Acadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture.
Thanks to City Farmer for posting about the project.
