Atlanta --  Fulton County “rolled out” the Fulton Fresh mobile farmer’s market to provide fresh fruits and vegetables in communities designated as “food deserts”. 

In a continued effort to address health disparities in Fulton County, the Fulton Fresh mobile farmer’s market has been created to deliver fresh produce from local farmers to residents living in communities designated as “food deserts”, large geographic areas where mainstream grocery stores are scarce or missing.

Living in unhealthy food environments where fast food or unhealthy foods are more available than freshly grown foods leaves communities at risk for obesity and diabetes as well as other chronic diseases.

Community residents were treated with a healthy food cooking demonstration, nutrition information, healthy cooking recipes, health screenings and of course, fresh vegetables.
