The closure of City Market, a 12th Street grocery store, has left a food desert in a largely low-income neighborhood in the center city.

The city of Little Rock has announced a stopgap substitute, a mobile market that will sell fresh produce every Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on the parking lot at 13th and Cedar Streets. At the beginning, cash only will be accepted but they hope to accept SNAP soon.

The Fresh2You Mobile Market stop at 13th and Cedar is a product of that group’s work with the city of Little Rock, Vine and Village, the Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance and Mosaic Church. Representatives of all of them will talk about the effort at a news conference Sunday at Mosaic Church at Col. Glenn and University.

Fresh2You begin operating in a refitted bus August 2016 with the goal of bringing fresh produce to different parts of Little Rock and North Little Rock. More info at its Facebook page.
