Mobile Farmers Market

Mobile Market Trustees

“My family needs the mobile market. Cooking is what we do. It’s part of our culture, and you can’t cook with bad ingredients. [This market] has the best ingredients I’ve seen in Boston, and I can actually afford it.” – customer at the Roxbury YMCA stop

Meet the Trustees Mobile Farmers Market, a new way to get farm-fresh food on the move, and out to the communities that want and need it! We created this innovative program on wheels to help make locally-grown food from Trustees and other Massachusetts farms available to people who live and work in Boston neighborhoods where access to healthy, fresh food can be a challenge.

The Trustees Mobile Farmers Market carries a wide selection of seasonal vegetables from Powisset Farm in Dover, along with local fruits, milk, meat, and eggs.

The Trustees Mobile Farmers Market is designed to make it as convenient and affordable as possible to purchase delicious, local food. The market will accept cash, credit, SNAP/EBT, and WIC and Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) coupons. We also happily accept Massachusetts Healthy Incentives Program (HIP) benefits! All customers paying with SNAP are eligible to utilize their HIP Benefits ($40-$80/mo depending on household size) on vegetable and fruit purchases. If utilized, the full amount of qualifying purchases will be automatically added back onto customers’ EBT cards!

The Trustees Mobile Farmers Market makes stops every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday (excluding holidays) at community locations in Dorchester, the South End, Jamaica Plain, Roslindale, and Roxbury. 

Come visit us and let us bring a taste of the farm to you!

“There’s so much more variety at the market this year. There’s berries every week. There’s honey, eggs, milk, and cheese. I can rely on it.” – customer at the Whittier Health Center stop
