CINCINNATI — If you don’t drive, and there’s not a grocery store nearby, getting stocked up can be pretty difficult. A new city program launched to help tackle that problem and put neighborhood farmers in business for themselves. Neighborhoods such as Over-the-Rhine have seen a lot of new development, but not necessarily a lot of fresh food options. In response, the new Cincinnati mobile produce vendor program, which launched June 7, is creating access to healthy, local food.
Most locations, including Park + Vine, have hours from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. It costs $125 in permits and fees to set up shop, and the city will monitor this pilot program through the end of the year.
