Watch: Mobile Market Brings Farm Produce to Island Neighborhoods

This summer, the nonprofit Island Grown Initiative took a big step forward in its campaign for food equity on Martha’s Vineyard by purchasing a mobile florist shop and transforming it into a rolling produce market that visits low- and moderate-income neighborhoods around the Island weekly. Anyone may buy from the truck, which sells vegetables from Morning Glory Farm and other local growers at a break-even markup. (Scroll down for a schedule of its stops.)

In this MVTV clip, Bella Felipe catches up with the Mobile Market on its rounds and reports, in Portuguese and English, on what she finds.

Talent Night at the Farm, in Pictures

Staff Report:

Farm kids played in the grass as party-goers climbed aboard the Providence-based Acme Photo Booth, a 1970 VW bus converted into a “photographic van” for on-the-spot photos. We also paid visits to the new baby lambs, and noticed that the chicken house has its own tiny mailbox. Read More
