Building New Markets
Cost and access are two of the most prominent barriers to food access in Morgantown. Transit Marts are one solution.
Two major barriers to food access in Morgantown, WV, are price and location. In order to create a more inclusive foodscape, Conscious Harvest recognizes the need to address these two major areas. Our transit mart is a pop up market run by Conscious Harvest Partners in areas of low food access throughout Morgantown. The markets target areas that have limited resources and limited access to transportation. Produce is sold at these markets at an affordable rate. All of the produce sold is grown using sustainable methods, donated either through our backyard gleaning program or grown on the community plots at Conscious Harvest's Garden. Any produce leftover at the end of the market is then donated to local food pantries.
