Neighborhood Pop-up Grocery Project

Get fresh produce from local farms at a restaurant near you!

NPUG Logo

With the Neighborhood Pop-Up Grocery project Austin-area restaurants are now offering boxes of farm fresh fruits and veggies for sale. Produce boxes include 5-7 types of seasonal fruits and veggies – contents will vary each week depending on what’s in season!

The Neighborhood Pop-Up Grocery project is a collaboration between Sustainable Food Center, Foodshed Investors and the City of Austin.

These pop-up groceries will be less crowded and require less travel than traditional full-service grocery stores, all the while keeping Austinites’ food dollars in the local economy at a critically important time.

This solution makes it easier for Austinites to buy healthy food safely and affordably.

How Does it Work?

With funding from the City of Austin, participating restaurants receive produce boxes and other grocery items at NO COST! This allows restaurants to sell produce boxes and grocery items to their community at a low cost and keep all the proceeds.

This project model allows local restaurants to generate additional revenue and retain key staff, increases food shopping options, and supports local farmers by purchasing up food that may have otherwise gone to waste during the pandemic.

The majority of the pop-up groceries are offering mixed produce boxes sourced from the food hub The Common Market – Texas. Several pop-up groceries also have a more expanded offering- selling produce as well as meat, eggs, and pantry goods.

How Can I Shop at a Neighborhood Pop-Up Grocery?

Anyone can purchase items from a Neighborhood Pop-Up Grocery location! Pop-up groceries are available during restaurant operating hours. Simply find a location near you from our list below and contact the location directly for order and pickup instructions.

Can I use EBT LoneStar/SNAP?

Unfortunately, we are not currently able to accept EBT. However, some locations are offering 50% off for SNAP participants. See our list below for these locations.
