Berrien Co. A mobile farmers market is making its way around Berrien County, serving communities with limited access to fresh food.

The truck will carry produce from Andrews University's student gardens five days a week, to seven different locations. The Be Healthy Berrien Mobile Farm Market is designed to present an affordable option for families to buy fresh fruit and vegetables.

That's according to our reporting partners at The Herald-Palladium .
