Mobile Supermarkets

Mobile Supermarkets

There are many solutions being developed to address the problems, inequalities, and lack of access in food deserts. One that is catching on quickly in cities across the US is mobile supermarkets

Mobile supermarkets, like the one managed by Hub City Farmers Market in Spartanburg, South Carolina, act like a "farmers market on wheels" that travel into food deserts and sell locally produced fruits and vegetables at affordable prices. When Hub City realized that there were areas that couldn’t access their local products, they decided to create a "mobile market food truck" that allows communities to use their food stamps and EBT cards and ensures access to healthy food.
