MELROSE -

A mobile farmers market in Melrose offers people fresh produce for free.

It's open every second Wednesday and fourth Saturday of the month to all residents with a 10451 area code.

The market is made possible by a grant from the New York Community Trust, which says its goal is to provide a variety of fruits and vegetables to underserved populations.

Tony Ortiz, who's been with City Harvest Organization for 12 years, says it's deeply fulfilling to help those who need it.
