The Mobile Market provides free, farm-fresh produce to residents from July to October each year. Now in its 7th season, the market has served thousands of families and individuals. Residents can select the produce they want, in the quantities right for their families, just like at a farmer’s market.
Every week, the Mobile Market offers squash, zucchini, kale, peppers, onions, lettuce and other vegetables, along with fruit and eggs on occasion. The variety depends on what is growing at the Sharing the Harvest Community Farm, a program of YMCA Southcoast, Dartmouth, which donates all the food available at the Mobile Market.
The market is staffed with volunteers from our sponsors, and volunteers from Sharing the Harvest provide information on how to prepare less familiar vegetables. In 2021, Mobile Market was sponsored by BankFive in New Bedford and Southcoast Health in Wareham.
The Mobile Market will return in July 2022. Check back for details.
