They launched in February, with pandemic food assistance funds. And now, they're really gaining steam.

Community Action Duluth's Mobile Market is making the rounds at five spots across Duluth each month.

"We're getting more regulars at our sites," explained Evan Flom, the program manager for Seeds of Success, which oversees the market.

Market employees set up the food, which is sold at cost. Then folks can pick and choose what they need, like at the grocery store. 

"All are welcome, anybody can shop at the market," Flom added. "We have a couple of programs where people can get discounts if they have an EBT card, or are under 18 or over 60."

They are focusing on places where there's not a grocery store close by, or where people may have mobility issues.

Delores really enjoys shopping at the market when it stops by the Rainbow Center. "I can pick up a few things. And my friend, Jane, she had two knee replacement. So it's much easier for her to come here, than go to the store," she told us.

Any money you donate to Community Action Duluth on Give to the Max day goes to the market.
