Produce Market on Wheels

New Jersey's first mobile produce market hopes to increase accessibility to more people

A city without much access to fresh produce is getting New Jersey's first mobile food market.
 
The mobile market being launched Wednesday in Camden looks like an ice cream truck.

But instead of peddling frozen snacks, the staff is selling locally grown produce as it drives the streets of the city.
 
The project has the support of the state government and corporate sponsors.
 
It's being run by the Camden Children's Garden despite uncertainty over the group's home.

The state government has announced plans to oust the group from its riverfront property, but the March 31 deadline came and went with no ouster.
