Mobile market celebrates season’s end

Fulton County Cooperative Extension will celebrate the successful fifth season of the Fulton Fresh Mobile Farmer’s Market at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The Fulton Fresh program began in 2011 as part of Fulton County’s continuous effort to address health disparities in communities located in food deserts. Communities served by the seasonal program benefit from the delivery of fresh produce, nutrition education and were taught how to prepare tasty, healthy meals with the produce they received.

Last year alone, the program provided some 38 tons of fresh produce to more than 9,000 residents.

The celebration, open to all Fulton County residents, will be held at Berean Seventh Day Adventist Church, 291 Hamilton E. Holmes Drive in Atlanta. County Chairman John Eaves, Commissioner Marvin S. Arrington, Jr., Fulton County Manager Dick Anderson and Fulton Fresh participants are slated to attend.
