A mobile produce market bringing fresh, affordable fruits and vegetables and providing community health resources to Phoenix and Tempe residents.

About The Service

Fresh Express by Discovery Triangle is a mobile produce market that provides access to high-quality, affordable produce to residents with little to no access to healthy food. We proudly serve individuals, families, school-age children, senior citizens, educators, and many others in the Discovery Triangle region. Our mission is to enhance the health of Discovery Triangle residents by increasing access, availability, and affordability of fresh produce and providing health and wellness resources to empower community members to make healthy choices.

Background

The Discovery Triangle Development Corporation (DTDC) deploys its expertise in redevelopment, public financing and incentives and market knowledge to help projects succeed in the Discovery Triangle. The Discovery Triangle, with its central location, easy access to transportation, including Sky Harbor International Airport, existing infrastructure and proximity to a diverse workforce, has become one of the region’s most dynamic economic growth centers.

Many neighborhoods within the Discovery Triangle have limited access to grocery stores and other healthy food outlets. DTDC brought together key community sponsors and partners and launched Fresh Express in April 2014. Since then, Fresh Express has been committed to providing quality and consistent access to fresh, healthy produce in food deserts throughout Phoenix and Tempe. To see what we’ve been up to, please take a look at our impact reports below.
