New local food and art initiative hits the road
Tuesday, June 25, 2019
A grocery store on wheels hits the road for the first time Tuesday, June 25.
Sprout, a food hub based in Little Falls, developed a new outlet for increasing access to fresh local foods in rural central Minnesota with its Mobile Market. The aim of the project is to bring food out of the aisles and on the road to areas that lack access to healthy, nutritious foods, while also adding a new platform for local growers to sell their products. All community members are welcome to shop at the Sprout Mobile Market, which will highlight fresh produce in addition to other basic staples like eggs, bread and meat.
