How much would it cost the city of Eureka to subsidize one (1) fresh produce truck to operate 5 days a week in the city limits?
Really it seems like the truck could generate enough income to partially support itself, even if prices were kept low.
The truck would spend one day a week in each of Eurekas five wards. Maybe tuesday through saturday. maybe mornings one place and afternoons another. So 10 opportunities a week for the community to buy fresh food. Food could be locally sourced when possible and reasonably priced. this would go a ways in remedy of a few serious food deserts in our community. Henderson Center and Old Town East are a couple of obvious ones. I am sure there are more.
Is this worth talking about? Yes I know it would compete with the farmers market. On the other hand it would actually BE a market for local farmers and they wouldn’t have to spend their time at a booth in Eureka, they could spend their time growing food.
have a peaceful day,
