Were you aware that there’s a new place in Clifton to buy produce, and at discounted prices? That’s right! TriHealth and the Freestore Foodbank worked together to create the Healthy Harvest Mobile Market, a truck of fruits and vegetables are located at Good Samaritan Hospital (near the Dixmyth entrance) from 11AM to 4PM every Tuesday. They sell fruit and vegetables at discounted prices. The Healthy Harvest Mobile Market accepts food stamps, snap, produce perks, FMNP, cash, and credit cards. Anyone using food stamps to pay for the produce will qualify for five free dollars in food at their next purchase. Note, though, that ANYONE can buy produce there.
To clarify exactly where the Healthy Harvest Mobile Market is located, I snapped a couple photos. If you’re standing at the corner of Clifton and Dixmyth, you can see the stand from there, and if you’re driving, it’s the first parking lot on the left. For many of the people reading this, the produce stand is within walking distance, so it’s cheap AND convenient. If you’re wondering what produce is available, the list has included cabbage, kale, chard, chives, cilantro, romaine lettuce, spinach, turnips, apples, grapes, bananas, asparagus, potatoes, and blueberries.
When I visited last week, Nick Reynolds, a mobile market coordinator for the Freestore Foodbank, was working there. He’s very happy with the response he has received thus far, and he encourages everyone to come pay him a visit. This win-win is fabulous news, and we welcome Healthy Harvest Mobile Market to Clifton. Healthy food, a convenient location, good prices—a few more reasons Clifton is a great neighborhood!
