Come Meet the MarketMobile and Ottawa Public Health


Come meet the Ottawa Public Library mini Bookmobile, MarketMobile and Ottawa Public Health for a wonderful afternoon of food-focused fun!

As part of our Food Literacy initiative, join us when the OPL mini Bookmobile meets up with the MarketMobile, a grocery store on wheels which travels around the city to locations where good, affordable fruit and vegetables are scarce. The MarketMobile accepts cash only and please bring a bag. For more information about their schedule visit their website. We will also be teaming up with Ottawa Public Health Community Food Advisors who will be providing interactive food demonstrations and cooking advice.

We'll be at Laroche Park in Mechanicsville, 62 Stonehurst Avenue on Wednesday July 6 from 3:00pm to 4:30pm with cooking and gardening books, videos, magazines and more. See you there!

This event offered in partnership with MarketMobile and Ottawa Public Health as part of the Food Literacy Project, funded by the Government of Ontario.
