|The original Lucky Taco truck!|
Before we get into the pics, we asked Dan to share a brief history of Hartford Food System with us.
"Our organization in a nutshell: in regards to our history, we’ve been around since 1978. Our first program was the farmers market that we took over at the Old State House. Since then, where most of these photos are concerned, we ran the Main Street Market from 1991 until the early 2000s and the Holcomb Farm CSA farm, which we spun off a few years ago. Now, our programs currently include our Grow Hartford program (four urban farming plots within the City of Hartford), Healthy Food Retailer Initiative (where we help corner stores to improve their healthy food selections), the North End Farmers Market, and our new North Hartford Community Kitchen program, which helps participants how to cook with healthy techniques on a limited budget. Our main goal is to combat hunger and food security (or one’s access to healthy food) in Hartford through non-emergency, sustainable methods. We have much more information on our website about these programs at hartfordfood.org."
She loves them apples!!!!
Three of these four ladies can spot ANY blemish on a tomato. The fourth gets the leftovers.
These two have a long day ahead of them.
We've seriously never seen a truck bed full or corn like that. That's a BP gas station in the background.
A really old market. Likely Market Street?
