Food deserts are defined as areas without proper access to fresh, healthy and affordable food. Toronto’s recently launched Mobile Good Food Market wants to overcome this problem by selling fresh produce on the streets in areas where people have few nutritious food options.

Do you still remember your New Year’s resolutions? You might have promised yourself to eat more veggies, or to prepare healthy meals more often. It all seems easy to accomplish in areas where farmer’s markets are popping up and where fresh vegetables and fruits are stacked in pyramids at supermarkets. But some urban areas are lacking grocery stores at all, or stores don’t sell the food that forms the basis of a healthy and balanced diet.
