The OzHarvest Mobile Market (OMM) is an initiative to provide regional communities with access to fresh produce and dry goods, free of charge. Households facing hardship, for example from job loss, bush fires, drought, flood, social isolation or low income, are all welcome to come along to our pop-up market. The market trucks roam throughout NSW towns providing a safe space for people to access healthy groceries and connect with other locals.
The OzHarvest Mobile Markets will continue to deliver nourishing food to regional communities across NSW in 2021, thanks to ongoing support from NSW Government and new supporter, cold storage company Chill.
Please come along if you are in need of food assistance. You will be offered a reusable shopping bag and invited to select your items from the tables. There is a limit of one bag 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!
Please see our schedule below.

What if I want to get a bag of groceries for my neighbour?
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@example.com
What can I expect when I arrive?
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 your preferred fresh items. 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!
What food should I expect?
Our focus is on fresh fruit and vegetables.
What if the time and date of the market change?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
How are you ensuring COVID19 safety?
We are asking that a maximum of two people per household come to collect the groceries. Only one person will be allowed to shop at a time and they will need to sanitise their hands before doing so. Our team will be wearing masks and gloves, and will handle the fresh produce items on behalf of the customers. If there is a queue, our team will be enforcing the 1.5m social distance rule.
