Island Grown Initiative has announced operating changes to this winter’s Mobile Market, the popular IGI service that delivers farm-fresh produce and eggs around the Island.

Due to coronavirus safety concerns, five of the six delivery sites, including St. Augustine’s Church in Vineyard Haven, will not be able to offer on-site shopping, effective immediately.

The market will only offer pick-ups for people who place a pre-order online. Instructions are posted at Orders must be placed 24 hours before pick-up.

On-site shopping will be available Mondays, from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., when Mobile Market customers at the Portuguese American Club in Oak Bluffs will be allowed inside the building to shop in person.
