Mobile Produce Stand (The MPS)
The Mobile Produce Stand (MPS) is Colorado Springs' only bike-able, collapsible, fresh food produce stand. The chief design/builder was woodworker Dan Crossey.
In addition to serving as a merchandise table, the MPS is a pilot initiative alongside our Fresh Food Connect program, and is used for donation-based farmers markets.
Big, Awesome Table (The BAT)
The Big, Awesome Table (The BAT) is a 24 ft. long picnic table with benches that collapses upon a bike trailer. It is made from 90% upcycled materials. Our design is inspired by Amanda Lovelee’s Really Big Table in St. Paul, MN. The chief design/builder was Dan Crossey.
The BAT is a center-piece for place-making in Colorado Springs, and has served as a community dining table for organizations ranging from CSFR to Concrete Couch & Food Not Bombs.
The BAT is available for any community-oriented event, free of charge. Please reach out to us if your organization would like to use it: firstname.lastname@example.org.
