CORONAVIRUS UPATE: Accessing fresh, locally grown food is an important part of mitigating the spread of COVID-19.  The Hilltown Mobile Market will continue to run this summer to serve our community.  We will follow all virus safety protocols in place from the state and Mass Dept of Agriculture to protect the health and safety of our customers and workers. If you have any questions or concerns please contact sevat@hilltowncdc.org 

Get fresh local produce every week!

 WHAT IS THE HILLTOWN MOBILE MARKET? 

The Hilltown Mobile Market is an innovative collaboration to increase the availability of fresh, local, and affordable produce to Hilltown residents of Western Massachusetts.  We are back for our second season in 2020!  Your support during our pilot season last year resulted in increased grant funding to purchase a market vehicle and broaden our reach to more communities.  Starting in July, we will bring "pop-up" markets to Blandford, Cummington, Huntington, and Worthington each week for 12 weeks, stocked with the freshest Hilltown-grown produce.  Stop by and shop with cash, credit, debit, SNAP, WIC, or Senior FMNP Coupons!

 & HILLTOWN FARM SHARE 


In addition to our weekly markets, we also offer a special Hilltown Farm Share that supports our farms and guarantees you a share of that week's harvest.  The 12-week farm share is an affordable option with a sliding scale between $5-20 per week that is also eligible for HIP (Healthy Incentives Program) reimbursements! The share consists of approximately five items of your choice of produce each week from the market stand and is designed for senior and small households (larger households are encouraged to sign up for more than one).  It is the perfect way to enjoy fresh, healthy, affordable local food all summer long.
