Get your peaches! The Peach Truck is returning to cities across region this week

Even the coronavirus pandemic can’t prevent you from picking up some of the juiciest peaches in the country.

Nashville’s Peach Truck is back, with just a few changes to its usual procedures in order to ensure the safety of its customers and employees.

The Peach Truck will be back in the Dayton area beginning on June 23, with stops scheduled across the region all summer.

>> Recipe ideas that will use your fresh peaches

The popular truck from Nashville takes the food truck idea and puts a healthy, Southern twist on it — offering fresh, juicy peaches from Georgia in our region. The truck will visit parts of Cincinnati, Dayton and Columbus.

The Peach Truck idea came about when founder Stephen Rose moved to Nashville in 2010 and discovered no one sold fresh, flavorful peaches like the kind he’d grown up eating in Georgia. Two years later, he and his wife, Jessica, made a trip back to Rose’s hometown farm and started selling peaches out of the back of a ‘64 Jeep truck.

The truck will make stops in several local cities, including Kettering, Hamilton, Middletown, Beavercreek, Xenia, Huber Heights, Troy and Springfield.

To ensure that each customer stays safe, you will now need to select a time to pick up your peaches from one of these locations. You can do so by visiting The Peach Truck's website. You can choose between The Special, two 25-pound boxes of peaches and two bags of pecans, for $100, one 25-pound box of peaches for $43, a 10-ounce bag of pecans for $10 and The Peach Truck Cookbook for $20.

If you'd rather avoid the crowds altogether, you can also have a box (or two) of these famous peaches shipped right to your home. Browse through a number of home delivery options on The Peach Truck's website.
