Join Fresh Approach and the Agricultural Institute of Marin as we discuss the impacts of mobile farmers' markets (MFM) throughout California. A MFM serves as a consolidated farmers market that can be transported in a vehicle to low-income communities and areas with limited fresh, healthy food options. Small scale operations like mobile farmers’ markets are able to pivot quickly as shown in the response to COVID-19. This not only strengthens regional food systems by providing consistent access to local produce to historically underserved communities, but also by providing consistent financial support to local growers. This workshop is geared towards small-scale farmers, urban growers, and beginning farmers.
