From passenger to produce, the city bus is quickly transformed into a mobile food market using PASSAGE studio's custom designed millwork solution.
On May 14th, 2016, the Mobile Food Market was launched in East Preston Nova Scotia.
The Mobile Food Market focuses on making affordable, high quality, fresh fruits and vegetables available in communities with limited access to healthy food.The Mobile Food Market brings fresh fruit and vegetables to five communities using a transit bus.
The design allows for the produce to be restocked quickly, and the painted plywood millwork raises the produce to a comfortable height.
The city bus can be converted to the mobile food market within 15 minutes. The bus distributes produce for the day and is quickly converted back to a passenger bus for the evening.
For 21 weeks the mobile food market will travel to various communities full of fresh, affordable fruit and vegetables.
Millwork components are installed into each seat location within the bus. Plastic bins full of fresh produce are then easily dropped into each component.

The existing bus structure and layout were economically utilized to provide an efficient shopping experience.
