Fresh MARTA Market at Bankhead 

The Fresh MARTA Market is a farm stand that takes place in five MARTA stations. The markets located at Bankhead, West End, Five Points, College Park, and H.E. Holmes MARTA Stations 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: help get healthy, fresh food into places where people already are.

This innovative food access solution is a partnership between MARTA and the  Community Farmers Markets along with community partners  Atlanta Community Food BankOpen Hand and  Wholesome Wave Georgia. The Fresh MARTA Market sources locally grown produce from the farmers affiliated with Community Farmers Markets, as well as several local food hubs. This gives local farmers the opportunity to sell more produce to consumers that might not otherwise make it to a farmers market. This produce is complemented by non-local produce so that Fresh MARTA Market patrons can do a large amount of their fresh food shopping on their way to or from home.

The markets accept cash, credit and debit, as well as EBT/SNAP. SNAP is doubled at the market, meaning that $5 swiped is worth $10 to spend.

Atlanta Community Food Bank screens individuals and families to see if they are eligible for benefits like SNAP (food stamps), Medicaid, TANF, or Subsidized Childcare Assistance. To see if you are eligible to receive these benefits, email  benefits@acfb.org or call (678) 553-5917.
