The Mobile Market is now on the road five days a week! We are running Wednesday through Sunday, from 10am to 5pm and we accept cash, credit, debit, WIC, SNAP, and Senior Coupons at all of our locations.  Swing on by and ask us about how we can double the value of you SNAP, WIC, elder coupon purchases with our Market Bucks program!  Join us in our endeavor to promote local food throughout Lowell!
