What is The Veggie Mobile®?
Capital Roots' Veggie Mobile® is a mobile market
that travels to inner-city neighborhoods throughout Albany, Rensselaer and Schenectady counties. It’s been delivering a large variety of fresh, affordable and local produce to residents with limited access to fresh food since 2007. Designed for energy efficiency, the box-truck runs on bio-diesel fuel and has been retro-fitted with solar panels, which power the market’s refrigerators.

Give it a try! Taste and Take is a special part of the Veggie Mobile® experience. At each stop, we provide customers with a sample of a delicious recipe utilizing produce that can be found right on the truck. Customers are then given a bag containing the recipe along with some of the fresh produce used in the dish, so that they can head home and try the recipe themselves. Customers leave tasting, taking and talking!
Veggie Mobile® accepts the following payment types:
- Veggie Rx
- Farmers Market Nutrition Program Checks (July through November)
- Capital Roots sponsored certificates
