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! The Veggie Mobile offers a different ‘Taste and Take’ recipe each week.
Samples are handed out with recipes that include nutritional facts about the produce they contain. The recipes can be prepared using ingredients that Capital Roots has fresh on the truck and customers leave tasting, taking and talking!
