For the fifth year, DeKalb is bringing fresh food on wheels to communities around the county.
“Fresh on DeK,” DeKalb County’s Mobile Farmers Market, travels throughout the area offering fruits and vegetables for sale, along with nutrition education. The season began last week and runs through Sept. 20.
According to the schedule for the program, it rotates between a total of 10 locations from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and from noon to 2 p.m. on Fridays.
The farmers market accepts credit cards, cash and EBT. The mission of the initiative is to “improve the health of the community, the viability of local produce and to preserve the environment for future generations by providing access to fresh produce and nutritional education programming,” the county said in a statement.
