WRSI: Hilltown Mobile Market
WRSI, July 23, 2021. Seva Water, Coordinator of the Hilltown Mobile Market, and Kate Bavelock, Director of Community Programs, with Hilltown CDC, talk about getting veggies from Hilltown farmers right on the van and directly to the people.
Hilltown Mobile Market gives hilltown residents access to affordable local food and hilltown farmers a market to sell. A win-win-win for food access, community healthy, and the local economy.
The market runs out of a converted van. “First we gather produce from all the hilltown farms we work with,” says market coordinator Seva Waters. “When we get to market, shoppers fill their weekly shares with whatever they want. Or if they don’t have a farm share, they can just buy produce on the spot.”
The market also helps close the “SNAP gap” in the hilltowns, offering several locations for people to use their SNAP and HIP benefits on healthy produce. WIC, Senior Coupons, cash and credit also accepted.
