mobile farmer’s market.

Yay, it’s about time I feature the mobile farmer’s market truck that comes to my work. Every Wednesday “CiCi” the truck rolls in with a bounty of fruits, veggies, dried goods, and flowers. It’s a highlight of the week every week and I always find something colorful and fresh to bring home. The truck is part of Fresh Approach whose mission is to connect communities with healthy food options from local farmers, and to share food and nutrition information – like fun recipes to try with produce that’s in season. This week’s bounty: strawberries, squash, peppers, cucumbers, and eggplant. Yum! What are some of your favorite farmer’s market stops and finds? Share below!
