We all know how challenging it can be to get fresh fruits, veggies and meats east of the river. Ward 8 has over 70,000 residents yet we have only one grocery store! This is the nation's capital and Ward 8 has only one grocery store! How is that even possible?!
As you can imagine it can be very challenging to get easy access to healthy and affordable foods. That is why the Arcadia Mobile Market is such a great idea. Bring the peaches to the people! ;)
The Arcadia Mobile Market makes plenty of stops east of the river. Be sure to check out their schedule and pay them a visit. In addition to fresh fruits and veggies there is also fresh meats, milk, baked goods and more! Families that receive SNAP get 1/2 off the market prices! How cool is that?!
