Applications for DeKalb Mobile Farmers Market sites now open

Fram

DeKalb County Cooperative Extension is calling for applications for Fresh on DeK, the DeKalb Mobile Farmers Market, stops for 2021. The deadline to apply is Friday, Feb. 26, 2021.

Launched in May 2015, Fresh on DeK has raised awareness about the importance of fruit and vegetable consumption for healthy living by providing fresh, affordable produce and food demonstrations to county residents.

Communities, businesses, or organizations can apply to be a Fresh on DeK stop. The proposed location must be able to provide a liaison to organize the site. The site must also have a street-level parking area that is highly visible, large enough to safely park a 60-foot bus and easy for customers to access and park without hazard.

The market visits areas around the county each week, beginning in the spring and running 16 weeks. To apply to be a Fresh on DeK stop, and to find more details about the application requirements, please visit www.freshondek.com and click “2021 Season Application” or visit https://bit.ly/3oi026u. Special considerations are being taken according to county and state guidelines regarding COVID-19.
