MILL CITY GROWS LAUNCHES INDOOR WINTER FARMERS MARKET SEASON IN LOWELL, MA

Indoor Mobile Markets are held at UMass Lowell’s University Crossing and at the Lowell Senior Center through April 2024

[LOWELL, MA] – Seasonal, locally grown produce is now available for purchase through April 2024 at Mill City Grows’ (MCG) Indoor Winter Farmers Markets at UMass Lowell University Crossing and the Lowell Senior Center. Shoppers can enjoy a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables grown in the City of Lowell as well as produce sourced from area farmers. Mill City Grows Mobile Markets accept SNAP/EBT, cash, credit, debit, WellSense, Apple Pay, and Mill City Grows E-Gift Cards for payment. All markets also accept HIP (Healthy Incentives Program), a SNAP benefit that provides $1 back for every dollar spent on fruits and vegetables purchased directly from a HIP authorized farm or vendor. SNAP customers are encouraged to ask about HIP discounts while shopping.

Launched in June 2014, Mill City Grows’ Mobile Market Program strives to fulfill the organization’s mission to make nutritious, locally grown food affordable and accessible to all Lowell residents, especially those with limited mobility and access to grocery stores. The Program is supported in part by the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR), United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Cummings Foundation, Plenus Group, Inc., The City of Lowell, and Tufts Medicine Lowell General Hospital.
