Mobile market 2

This is a rendering of the mobile food market that will travel through Horry, Georgetown and Williamsburg counties this summer.

A mobile farmers market will sweep through the Grand Strand next week.

Waccamaw Market Cooperative’s new produce truck will debut Tuesday with stops in Georgetown and Conway. On Wednesday, the truck will hit Murrells Inlet and Kingstree, and on Thursday it will make two stops in the Myrtle Beach area.

The mobile market program has been in the works for years, but the nonprofit cooperative finally secured grants for the project and got everything rolling this summer.

The mobile market is a rehabbed FedEx truck, complete with a refrigeration system and a pop-down side for distributing fruits and veggies. For more details, visit the cooperative's website.
