ATLANTA - The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) in partnership with Community Farmers Markets (CFM), announces the kick-off for the MARTA Market Food Pantry for 2024 season. Beginning on Wednesday, Feb.14 at H.E. Holmes Station, Thursday, Feb.15 at College Park and Kensington Station and Friday, Feb.16 at Doraville and Five Points Station.

From February 14 through April 26 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., CFM, in collaboration with partner organizations Urban Recipe, Second Helpings, and InTown Cares, will host free food pantry events to distribute fresh produce, shelf stable and frozen food items at MARTA Market locations. Market visitors will also be invited to participate in the MARTA Market Test Kitchen by sampling and providing feedback on plant-based recipes.

During the remaining 2024 season (May-December), the MARTA Market will provide farm stands right inside our stations. The markets serve multiple areas with limited food access. Each stand operates one-day per week, providing fresh produce to MARTA customers from Tuesday to Friday at a different station each day. The goal is simple: to help get healthy, fresh food into places where people already are.
