Green Carts sell fresh fruits and vegetables in neighborhoods where those can be hard to find. Vendors sell everything from mangoes and papayas to green beans and carrots.

  • Many Green Carts accept SNAP benefits
  • If you can’t find what you’re looking for at your local green cart, you can ask the vendor to stock what you need
