Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture

Alexandria, Virginia
Food Co-op / Grocery

Arcadia's Mobile Markets source fresh, locally- and sustainably-grown produce from Arcadia Farm in Alexandria, VA and 18+ farms within 125 miles of Washington, D.C.

We carry fruits, vegetables, meat, milk, eggs, bread, honey, granola and other wholesome products. The Markets make 19 weekly stops in the DC-Metro area in low food access neighborhoods.

We accept all forms of payment, including cash, debit, SNAP/EBT, WIC and Senior FMNP vouchers, and DC Produce Plus Vouchers. Through generous donors, we are able to double the value of federal nutrition benefits for produce, meat and eggs -- that means $20 on an EBT card can yield $40 in healthy, nutritious food for our customers.

We also make educational school visits with the Mobile Market, host field trips on Arcadia Farm, and run a 5-week summer farm camp. More than 20 percent of our campers receive full scholarships, which are funded by donors.
