What is the OzHarvest Mobile Market?

Please come along if you are in need of food assistance. You will be greeted by our on-road Ambassadors and invited to select your items from the tables, except in times of COVID pressures when social distancing will mean pre-packed hampers will be handed out at the site. There is a limit of one bag per household.

The OzHarvest Mobile Markets will continue to deliver nourishing food to regional communities across NSW in 2021, thanks to the support of cold storage company Chill.

During COVID-19, we have created a Facebook group. This is a private group for real-time updates about when the OzHarvest Mobile Market visiting your town.

 

FAQs

COVID-19 Update

December 2021

  • Pop-up markets remain contactless to keep everyone safe, even after the peak of the recent pandemic wave in NSW.
  • Please note, every attendee is requested to maintain social distancing of 1.5m and strongly encouraged to wear a mask at our pop-up markets please, regardless of their personal vaccination choices. 
  • Please always follow the directions of our onsite Mobile Market Ambassador team. We are working together with locals to support often elderly or Indigenous populations which are much more vulnerable in the pandemic. Risk minimisation remains a priority at this time.
  • All pop-up events will be predominantly pre-packed hamper style. Please keep distanced from the food packing tables. No BYO bags for the time being, as passing and re-packing items means people become too close.

We thank everyone who has respectfully supported OzHarvest’s efforts to minimise risk in each location.

OzHarvest Mobile Market FAQs

Please note additional bags are not guaranteed and will depend on stock levels on the day. When you arrive, we will confirm if you can take extra bags with you. If you would like to contact us directly, then please email [email protected]

During times of COVID restrictions:
When approaching the van you will see a contactless ‘pick up point’ where our team drop each pre-packed hamper. No BYO bags please.

When NSW is free of  COVID restrictions:
Please BYO bag/box. There may be a small queue to join (it moves quick), please keep 1.5m apart for covid safety. Our team will handle all the produce & fill your bag/box with fresh items you prefer. There is a limit of one bag of groceries per household. We love meeting new people so if you have the time, we would also love to stop and chat to learn more about your town!

Our focus is on fresh fruit and vegetables.

If we have run into trouble on the road and unfortunately need to reschedule the market for your town, then we will notify the relevant community leaders. They will be in touch with whoever they have referred to ensure they are kept up to date with the changes. If you would like to contact us directly, then please email [email protected]

We ask that a maximum of two people per household come to the market site. Our team will be wearing masks and gloves, and asking customers to keep distanced from the tables and not touch the produce. We will handle the fresh produce items on behalf of customers. If there is a queue, our team will be enforcing the 1.5m social distance rule. Only one person will be allowed to shop at a time.

Please check www.ozharvest.org/omm for our latest regional NSW visit updates, or email [email protected] to find out when your town will next be reached. Our aim is to return to each town every two weeks.
