What is a Mobile Market?

A Mobile Market is a farm stand on wheels that delivers food to the places that need it most. It serves as a link between New Hampshire farmers and the communities with limited access to locally-grown produce and healthy food. Instead of consumers commuting to the farm, farmer’s market, or even a grocery store, mobile markets travel directly into communities to make food more convenient and affordable to access.


Fresh Start Food Cart

2019 is the pilot year for the Fresh Start Food Cart. We offer fruit, vegetables, and other local products for purchase at various stops in southern NH.  All SNAP/EBT customers double their money thanks to the 2:1 incentive through the Granite State Market Match program Funding for the Fresh Start Food Cart was provided by the Harvard Pilgrim Foundation’s Healthy Food Fund, and the NH Children’s Health Foundation


Current Stops & Schedule

The Fresh Start Food Cart runs weekly from June to November, starting in Manchester in 2019, with plans to expand to the Concord area in 2020. 

In 2019 ORIS CURRENTLY ServeS 3 community sites and 1 Employee Wellness Program for a local non-profit.

Business Sponsorship–Employee Wellness

The Fresh Start Food Cart serves local businesses through a fee-for-service sponsorship model.
