Support Our Mission

Road to Prosperity

It’s official! This farmers market is going on wheels!

In 2020 we set out to build a mobile farmers market to support black farmers, businesses and bring healthy affordable foods to communities that need it. 

While working toward our mobile market, we began hosting pop-up farmers markets throughout Los Angeles and in 2 years we have:

  • Hosted 20 pop-up farmers markets and 22 virtual markets (our online marketplace)
  • Supported 30+ black-owned businesses per market, and 100+ black-owned businesses collectively
  • Hosted 14 free produce giveaways, feeding 8,000+ people
  • Popped up in communities all over LA, from Compton to Malibu!
  • Created fun community initiatives like our Black Business Scavenger Hunt
  • Crowdfunded to raise $111k to build our mobile farmers market
  • And more! 

What’s Next?

Our mobile farmers market will officially hit the road this year!  Watch below for a sneak peak of our trailer.

We are incredibly excited for the launch of our mobile farmers market, however, we are not done just yet. In preparation to officially hit the road we still need:

  • A heavy duty truck to pull the trailer
  • A commercial kitchen to prep & store inventory
  • A commissary to park the trailer

We still need your support to get across the finish line!

There are several ways that you can help us continue to create an impact for black farmers & businesses, and bring healthy, good foods to communities.

So what exactly is this trailer?

Our mobile market is a 48ft trailer that is literally a farmers market on wheels and a food truck in one! The back of the trailer is the farmers market where you can come inside to shop. Imagine an aisle in the grocery store with fresh produce, packaged goods, grab & go snacks, and supplemental products. 

The front of the trailer is a kitchen, which will feature a rotating selection of chefs & food entrepreneurs. This is our built in, pop-up style food truck! The best part? We can drive right into your neighborhood!

As a mobile farmers market we have the ability to serve in all communities. We can bring healthy, good foods directly into neighborhoods that don’t have grocery stores or alternatives and we can also take our vendors all over, expanding their reach and helping them scale.

Community Impact

Disparity

Only 2.2% of all U.S. employer businesses are black owned, and now due to COVID 41% have had to close.  ⅔ of black owned businesses are located in the hardest hit COVID areas.  Black americans are disproportionately affected by COVID due to pre-existing conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and hypertension, which are largely preventable with proper nutrition and a healthy diet.

23.5 Million Americans live in areas with limited access to grocery stores or alternatives to healthy, affordable food.  California is the largest agricultural producing state in the country, yet Los Angeles has the highest population of hungry people.  

2.6 million Angelinos are currently experiencing food insecurity.

PROSPERITY

Prosperity Market is a farmers market on wheels and a food truck in one, featuring black farmers, food producers, and chefs!  We travel throughout Los Angeles, making it easier to support local businesses while creating food access in our communities.

We are transforming our local ecosystem and our economy through agriculture, food access, nutrition education, and community partnerships.

We encourage economic growth, provide access to healthy food, promote long-term healthy habits, support the black agricultural movement, and create opportunities for the community to Prosper.

To Our Supporters

We are beyond grateful for our community, and the outpouring of love and financial support.

Farmers Market Pop-Ups

Our goal is to support local black farmers and food businesses throughout L.A. and create food access in our communities! With a focus on our local food system, not only can we feed our neighbors, we can also create a substantial economic impact.
