Relaunching November 9th, 2020, the Fresh Moves Mobile Market is a bus that has been converted into a mobile farmers’ market. The “produce aisle on wheels” aims to close the ‘food access gap’ by bringing fresh, locally grown produce and other healthy foods to communities that have historically lacked access to nutritious foods. We accept cash, Link/SNAP, and card. Find us at one of the sites listed below!

From July to October, UGC runs a Collective Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. Members enjoy a seasonal array of vegetables and culinary herbs grown on Urban Growers Collective’s farms! Each CSA box consists of 12-15 vegetables and is supplemented with micro greens from Urban Eden, fruit from Seedling Farm, and vegetables grown by BIPOC Beginning Farmers for Chicago Incubator Farmers.

CSA shares are available for the full season or from month to month. Shares are distributed each Saturday, and members can choose between home delivery or pick up from one of these three locations:

  1. Urban Growers Collective South Chicago Farm, 9000 S Mackinaw Ave, Chicago, IL 60617
  2. Floriole Bakery, 1220 W Webster Ave, Chicago, IL 60614
