Urban Greens Market

Moblie Market banner

 

The Urban Greens Mobile Market was established by Salt Lake City, in partnership with Green Urban Lunch BoxUtahns Against Hunger and Utah Community Action Program’s Real Food Rising, after being awarded a U.S. Department of Agriculture, Farmers Market Promotion Program grant in November 2015.

 All locations  accept SNAP/EBT and Double Up Food Bucks meaning the Urban Greens Mobile Market will match what you spend with free Double Up tokens, up to $10, every market day. You spend $1, the market matches $1. Use the Double Up tokens right away or save for another day.

The 2013 Salt Lake City Community Food Assessment found that the Glendale/Poplar Grove area has low supermarket access and some of the lowest vehicle ownership rates in the city. Of key significance are the lack of a full-service grocery stores in contrast with an abundance of fast food outlets and convenience stores within the target community, leading the U.S. Department of Agriculture to classify these neighborhoods as food deserts.
