WHAT IS THE HILLTOWN MOBILE MARKET?

The Hilltown Mobile Market is an innovative project to increase the availability of fresh, local, and affordable produce to Hilltown residents. In 2019 we organized two "pop-up" farm stands in Worthington and Huntington for 10 weeks.  We combined Hilltown-grown produce from multiple local farms to sell each week and proudly accepted many forms of payment: cash, credit, debit, SNAP, WIC, and Senior FMNP Coupons.  

 

In addition to our weekly markets, we also offered a special farm share program that allowed customers in both locations to pick-up a small weekly share of local produce for $5/week.  Customers paying with SNAP could also receive a full refund through the Healthy Incentives Program (HIP).  This 10-week farm share was worth $175 and was designed for senior and small households (larger households were encouraged to sign up for more than one).  It was the perfect way to enjoy fresh, healthy, affordable local food all summer long.
