Eating fresh and healthy is for everyone

The Pop-Up Produce Stands are back at the Bonneville Transit (BTC) Plaza. These pop-up stands are open to everyone to help provide access to affordable, locally grown, organic fresh fruits and vegetables.

 According to Three Square, approximately 274,000 people in Southern Nevada are food insecure, meaning they are unable to access or afford enough nutritious food for their overall health and well-being. The produce stands program is a partnership among the Southern Nevada Health District’s Office of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC) and Prevail Marketplace. Prevail Marketplace is the only farmers market in Southern Nevada to source a majority of their produce from Nevada farmers.

Pop-Up Produce Stands are scheduled for the first Tuesday of each month at the BTC Plaza, located at 101 E. Bonneville Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89101 from noon to 3 p.m., or while supplies last:

  • Tuesday, October 3
  • Tuesday, November 7
  • Tuesday, December 5

Customers can use their SNAP/EBT card, cash, debit or credit cards. Join us for fresh produce, free healthy recipe cards, nutrition education and other health resources.

 For more information, call the Office of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion at (702) 759-1270 or visit the Get Healthy Clark County Farmers Markets page. The website also has a list of local farmers markets, including those that accept EBT, SNAP and debit or credit cards.
