In the heart of Las Vegas, a vital initiative is underway to address food insecurity, a pressing issue affecting approximately 1 in 8 people in Southern Nevada, according to community food bank Three Square.

Being food insecure means individuals are unable to access or afford enough nutritious food for their overall health and well-being. Fortunately, a program in downtown Las Vegas is open to everyone that provides access to affordable, locally grown, organic fresh fruits and vegetables. The Pop-Up Produce Stand is a partnership among the Southern Nevada Health District’s Office of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, RTC, Southern Nevada Strong, Together We Can’s Veggie Buck Truck, 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 and second Tuesday of the month all spring. They will be held 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, May 7
  • Tuesday, May 14
  • Tuesday, June 4
  • Tuesday, June 11

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 for more farmers markets accepting EBT, SNAP, and debit or credit cards.
