It’s being run as a social enterprise to deliver fresh fruit and vegetables into the heart of Edmonton’s food deserts.

It’s a concept that’s already taken off in Calgary.

Fresh Routes Calgary now trucks veggies to 60 different locations, partnering with H&W Produce & others.
.@FreshRoutes sets up near seniors homes, affordable housing complexes and low-income neighbourhoods without a grocery store within walking distance.

They work with local community ambassadors to promote the market and add a social component to the weekly gathering.
