You are here

An exciting new initiative spearheaded by the Somerset West Community Health Centre is on its way to Mechanicsville: the MarketMobile!

The MarketMobile is mobile grocery store that brings fresh, affordable, and culturally-appropriate vegetables and fruit to Ottawa neighbourhoods that have limited access to healthy food. Produce on the MarketMobile is selected based on residents’ needs and cultural preferences, purchased in bulk and sold on a cost recovery basis. Beginning this spring, the MarketMobile will operate year-round, two days per week, visiting the communities of Bayshore, Caldwell, Morrison Gardens, Mechanicsville, Sandy Hill, Carsons, Hunt-Club East and Vars.
