Overview of Survey
Do you currently – or are you planning to – operate a mobile produce market? We want to hear from you! The National Mobile Market Survey, developed by the Veggie Van Training Center and Mobile Market Coalition, is an annual survey that provides national data on the economic growth, activities, opportunities, and challenges of mobile markets. The survey will take less than 30 minutes to complete. Access to financial records will help move the process along. Sharing your voice in the National Mobile Market survey is time well spent! Your responses will help us better capture the current number of mobile markets operating and will tell a story of how you’ve met the food access needs of your community. When combined with stories of other mobile markets across the country, this survey becomes a powerful tool that shapes how resources are distributed by funders, investors, and government decision makers. Thank you for helping us gather this information to better serve you and your mobile markets colleagues nationwide – data will inform a National Mobile Market Impact Report that can be used to support operations, grant writing, and advocacy efforts. We can’t wait to hear from you! To take the survey please visit: https://www.
