With spring fully underway, the Pop-Up Produce Stands return to Las Vegas on April 2, giving people increased access to affordable, locally grown, organic fresh fruits and vegetables. The pop-ups are scheduled for six dates in April, May and June at the Bonneville Transit Center (BTC) in Las Vegas. Customers can use their SNAP/EBT card, cash, debit or credit cards.

The pop-up stands are aimed at helping address the problem of food insecurity in Southern Nevada. Approximately 274,430 people in Clark County — nearly 12% of the population — are food insecure, meaning they are unable to access or afford enough nutritious food for their overall health and well-being. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, 12.8% of U.S. households experienced food insecurity during 2022.

The produce stands program is a partnership among the Southern Nevada Health District’s Office of Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), Prevail Marketplace and Together We Can’s Veggie Buck Truck.

The BTC, located at 101 E. Bonneville Ave., Las Vegas, NV 89101, will be the site of Pop-Up Produce Stands on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, April 9
  • Tuesday, May 7
  • Tuesday, May 14
  • Tuesday, June 4
  • Tuesday, June 11

The stand will be open from noon until 3 p.m., or while supplies last. Last year’s pop-ups resulted in nearly 2,300 pounds of produce sold and nearly $4,600 in total sales, with 40.4% of total sales from SNAP/EBT transactions.

Healthy recipe cards, nutrition education and other health resources will also be available at the pop-ups.

The website also has a list of local farmers markets, including those that accept EBT, SNAP and debit or credit cards.
