Buffalo's Massachusetts Avenue Project wants community partners like local nonprofit organizations and businesses to host the Growing Green Mobile Market for the 2019 season.
The mobile market is a farm stand on wheels, providing produce to neighborhoods which have limited access to fresh, affordable local fruits and vegetables. Common produce includes lettuce, collard greens, berries, tomatoes, onions and squash, much of which is grown on MAP's urban farm on Massachusetts Avenue, organizers said.
The Mobile Market is open to the public June through November five days a week for a few hours at a time – rain or shine.
Applications are due March 1 and are available on MAP's website at mass-ave.org.
