Fresh2You Mobile Market

Welcome to Fresh2You! Look for our one-of-a-kind truck from June through November in a neighborhood near you. Fresh2You makes select stops throughout Chester County bringing fresh, delicious, seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Fresh2You accepts all forms of payment, including cash, credit/debit, SNAP/EBT and WIC or Senior Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) checks. For customers shopping with SNAP/EBT or FMNP, Fresh2You can stretch your food budget by offering matching dollars in the form of Veggie Bucks.  These can be used on any future purchases of fruits and vegetables during the Fresh2You season!

Follow us on Facebook & Instagram for updates. Feel free to email us at fresh2you@chestercountyfoodbank.org with questions.

We will continue to follow the recommended COVID-19 precautionary measures for the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, partners and the community. 

Final Weeks of Fresh2You – Final Market November 19, 2021

 

 

 

From Farm to Market

Fresh2You sources most of the produce we sell from our very own Agriculture Department, with on-staff farmers growing at several locations throughout Chester County. We also support our network of local farms and producers by purchasing additional fruits and vegetables and other pantry staples, bringing you the best in seasonal produce and locally made products.

Some of our local growers and producers we work with (depending on the season and availability):

Cheyney University Aquaponics
Eagle Road Farm, Quarryville
Forge Hill Farms, Downingtown
Frecon Farms, Boyertown
Glen Willow Orchards, Avondale
Highland Orchards, West Chester
Mother Earth Mushrooms, Landenberg
Pete’s Produce Farm, West Chester
Swarmbustin’ Honey, West Grove
Two Gander Farm, Downingtown
Vollmecke Orchards, Coatesville

If you are a local grower or producer interested in having your products sold at Fresh2You, please send a product list to Max Kulp, Fresh2You Mobile Market Coordinator.

 

From Market to Table

In addition to selling an abundant selection of local, seasonal products, Fresh2You hosts Taste It Recipe Demonstrations. At most markets, you can find highly trained volunteers cooking and sampling our Weekly Recipe.

Fresh2You recipes are simple, seasonal, and feature ingredients fresh from our farmers. Along with taking home one of our free recipes, customers can purchase the $6 Weekly Recipe Bundle to make the recipe at home!

Take a look at our past recipes for inspiration or see below for how to join the market as a Taste It Volunteer.

Connecting Food with Health & Wellness

Fresh2You accepts Fruit and Vegetable Prescriptions (FVRx) as a form of payment. Through their health care provider at these locations, food-insecure patients can redeem prescriptions for fruits and vegetables weekly, at any Fresh2You Mobile Market Location. FVRx works in partnership with these health care providers:

Building Community

We work with established Farmers Markets, farm stands, and small retailers throughout the County to accept Veggie Bucks, and to encourage SNAP retailers. Growing Roots Partner’s Downingtown Farmers Market was the first farmers market in Chester County to accept SNAP in 2017! Growing Roots Partners now accepts SNAP at all of their markets with locations in Eagleview, Malvern, Devon and West Reading. If you are a market manager or retailer that is interested in becoming a Veggie Buck partner or SNAP retailer, contact Roberta Cosentino, for more information.
