The Go Fresh Mobile Farmer’s Market is a van that brings affordable, fresh fruits and vegetables to local neighborhoods every week in summer and fall. Now in its 10th season, Go Fresh serves 14 stops in 11 neighborhoods in Springfield.
2019 Season Schedule (coming soon!) https://www.facebook.com/GoFreshSpringfield
YMCA of Greater Springfield oversees all of the day to day operations with coordination and support from the Public Health Institute of Western. Go Fresh stops are located at public and senior housing, libraries, faith community, and health centers. Our Advisory Committee includes representatives from Gardening the Community, Springfield Health and Human Services, Mosque 13, Caring Health Center, and Baystate Health. We partner with U Mass Extension Nutrition Education to provide food demonstrations throughout the season.
The farms that grow produce for the market include Gardening the Community in Springfield, Next Barn Over in Hadley, and Mountain View Farm in Easthampton.
A special thank you to the following sponsors for their 2018 contributions to the market: STCC Foundation, Trinity Health of New England/Mercy Medical Center, PeoplesBank, Health New England, Davis Foundation, Baystate Health, Boston Medical Center HealthNet Plan, Beacon Communities, and the Springfield Housing Authority
