The Southern Nevada Health District announced that its pop-up produce stands will return to Las Vegas this week with affordable organic fruits and vegetables.

According to a news release, the produce stands give “people increased access to affordable, locally grown, organic fresh fruits and vegetables.”

The pop-up stands are offered from noon until 3 p.m., or while supplies last, at the Bonneville Transit Center, 101 E. Bonneville Avenue, in Las Vegas.

“The pop-up stands are aimed at helping address the problem of food insecurity in Southern Nevada,” the release said.

Customers can use their SNAP/EBT card, cash, debit or credit cards, organizers said.

The stands will be available on the following dates:

  • Tuesday, April 2
  • Tuesday, April 9
  • Tuesday, May 7
  • Tuesday, May 14
  • Tuesday, June 4
