DeKalb County Mobile Farmers Market has shifted into drive as it kicks off its fourth year of operation.
Residents in the area are encouraged to come out and purchase locally grown produce through the Fresh on DeK program.
The mobile farmers market began as a way to address food insecurity in the DeKalb County area through collaborations with the health department and a grant from the CDC.
In addition to the fresh food, residents benefit from the program through nutrition lessons and tastings, DeKalb County Extension Coordinator Lynwood Blackmon said. The market visits up to three locations a day.
Customers should be on the lookout for summer favorites such as sweet potatoes, okra, and squash. As for fruit, the mobile market is selling a variety including peaches, oranges, muscadines and plums.
The market will run Tuesdays through Fridays through September 21. Find the market location schedule here.
