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.

Thank you for coming out to us over the last year and supporting rural people. You have all been amazingly hard working and really pleasant visitors over that time. We have been through some difficult times in recent years so it was nice to see your smiling faces every few weeks with a positive purpose.
It has been absolutely wonderful to see the friendly faces from OzHarvest and regularly have a community gathering where each and every member would have a chat, catch up, share stories and be 100% grateful to be receiving support in the form of fresh fruit and vegetables.
John visits properties between Wyndham and Cathcart with OzHarvest fruit and veggies in hand. His visits regularly reconnect him to people and has been the catalyst for a support network for people living with trauma, despite the long distances. Each delivery is a cuppa and a conversation that they all look forward to.
Your visits have made a big difference. There have been times when people have said that the timing has been brilliant as they were running out of food and didn’t have any money until the next week. So it has literally meant if they had food on the table or not.

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.
