MARKET MOBILE

Market Mobile (MM) is a unique food distribution service that connects hundreds of Rhode Island and Massachusetts area restaurants, institutions, buying clubs, small grocery stores, food pantries, and co-ops directly to local farmers and producers through one simple ordering form. By streamlining the local food supply chain, MM is working to increase economic opportunity for farmers and producers in the region while getting fresh, local foods into our restaurants, schools, colleges, and food stores. The transparent nature of MM’s operations allows farmers and producers to maintain their identity and gives customers the opportunity to know exactly who and where their food is coming from.

About Farm Fresh Rhode Island

Location:

1005 Main St., Suite #8130, Pawtucket, RI 02860, US

Mission Statement

Mission: Farm Fresh Rhode Island is growing a local food system that values the environment, health and quality of life of RI farmers and eaters. Vision: A New England abundant with diverse family farms and fertile soils, with locally and honestly produced foods and flavors at the heart of every dinner table.

Description

Farm Fresh Rhode Island is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in 2004.

Part incubator, part activator, our programs link local farmers and buyers by building RI’s capacity in three areas: Producers → Markets → Eaters

Begun in 2004 as a student thesis project at Brown University, Farm Fresh has grown briskly to capture the public interest in locally grown food and translate it into sales for RI farmers and producers. Strongly mission-driven, Farm Fresh achieved 501c3 status in 2007 and has since implemented a variety of programs to enhance the local food system of the Rhode Island region, with particular attention to farm viability and low-income access to fresh food. Farm Fresh operates a wide range of marketplace programs (retail, wholesale, processing) that engages and connects tens of thousands of RI, MA and CT eaters with thousands of RI, MA and CT farmers.
