The Fresh MARTA Market is a pop-up farm stand that takes place in four MARTA public transport stations. The goal is simple: help farmers sell more produce while getting healthy, fresh food into places where people already are.
The Markets are located in the West End, Five Points, College Park, and H.E. Holmes MARTA Stations, serving multiple areas with limited food access. Each stand operates one-day per week , providing fresh produce on MARTA from Tuesday to Friday at a different station each day.
This innovative food access solution is a partnership between Community Farmers Markets, GA Food Oasis-Atlanta, Atlanta Community Food Bank, Organix Matters, and MARTA. The Fresh MARTA Market sources locally grown produce from members of the Southwest Atlanta Growers Cooperative and farmers affiliated with Community Farmers Markets, as well as several local food hubs. This gives local farmers the opportunity to sell more produce to consumers that might not otherwise make it to a farmers market. This produce is complemented by non-local produce so that Fresh MARTA Market patrons can do a large amount of their fresh food shopping on their way to or from home.
The markets accept cash, credit and debit, as well as EBT/SNAP. SNAP is doubled at the market, meaning that $5 swiped is worth $10 to spend.
