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

Our Goal

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) recognized the need to address the issue of accessing fresh produce in the Discovery Triangle region, which is considered a food desert. The majority of places to purchase fresh foods are “convenience stores” and it is difficult for residents to easily access grocery stores.

DTDC brought together key community sponsors and partners and launched Fresh Express to increase access, availability and affordability of fresh produce for Discovery Triangle residents and to provide health and wellness resources to empower the community to make healthy choices.
