Turnip Truck

Posted: 08/8/19

We’re jealous of everyone in Nashville that gets to shop at Turnip Truck! They’ve been serving the community since 2001 with a focus on local produce from independent farmers, sustainability, and community-building. Their aim is to empower their local community to eat “real food” by providing the highest quality natural, local, and organic foods.

Founded by community farmer, John Dyke, the store now has two locations in the heart of Nashville. Their mission is to connect the Nashville community with local, independent farmers by way of fresh produce. They also aim to enhance and support all diets through their expansive array of high-quality, natural foods. While they do support their community by bringing in locally manufactured products, they also offer non-local premium products to support and nourish all dietary needs.

Aside from selling great products, Turnip Truck aims to be an important contributor to their community. The store hosts sampling events, educational events, charity events, fundraisers, and more! They host summer tours and visit a local daycare to educate and assist in installing raised gardens.

Follow Your Heart is proud to partner with Turnip Truck as part of our Local Love program. We also have our roots as a small, community-focused, independent natural foods store, Follow Your Heart Market and Café. Both stores cater to health food fanatics, moms, college students, and those struggling to find delicious foods due to dietary needs. Turnip Truck proudly carries our Vegan Slices, Parmesan, and Vegenaise.

Whether you live in Nashville or are just visiting, we can’t recommend The Turnip Truck enough! Stop by for their Salad and Hot bar, fresh juices, full-service deli, or some of the best local produce the area has to offer. And as always, don’t forget the Vegenaise!
