Hilltown Mobile Market
Fresh food from the people you know and the places you love!
The Hilltown Mobile Market enables small local producers throughout our region to reach hundreds of Hilltown customers each week. Our rural area grows some of the highest quality food in the region, yet many residents aren't able to enjoy this fresh food due to lack of time, transportation, income, or accessibility. The Hilltown Mobile Market was created to address the challenges of rural food access while developing the economic viability of our small farms. We manage an online food hub with 20 producers (and growing!) selling everything from apples, beef, and cheese to yogurt and zucchini! We partner with local businesses, community centers, councils on aging, health centers and housing authorities to make this food available to anyone who wants it without the long trek to a grocery store or farmer's market.
The Market is an innovative program of Hilltown Community Development working to increase market access for small Hilltown producers and provide healthy, affordable produce to all residents. The grant-funded initiative began operating in Huntington and Cummington in 2019 and has now expanded to serve Blandford, Chester, Chesterfield, Westhampton, Williamsburg, Windsor, and Worthington. The goal of the market is to eventually sustain operations year-round and become a profitable distribution option for producers in the Hilltowns and beyond.
