A Farmers Market on Wheels


Kaiser Permanente is a sponsor of the Freshest Cargo mobile farmers market because it brings fresh and healthy food to neighborhoods that need it.

When you think of the kind of food you might find on a food truck, kale, carrots, and strawberries probably don’t come to mind. But that’s what you’ll find onboard the Freshest Cargo truck. Freshest Cargo is a mobile farmers market that serves 12 Bay Area cities. It’s a program of the nonprofit Fresh Approach. Watch the short video above to learn how the mobile market is making it easier for residents to eat healthier.

      Hi, Sharon. The mobile farmers market is for neighborhoods with severe food droughts. Please connect with your local health education professionals and others to explore whether a farmers market can be restarted at your facility.
