The famous Peach Truck, the peripatetic purveyor of Georgia peaches, has made one stop already in Louisville, and is scheduled to return with a second load tomorrow, June 13, at several locations around Louisville and Southern Indiana.
The Peach Truck is owned and operated by Stephen and Jessica Rose, a married couple who live in Nashville. When peaches deep under the Mason-Dixon line start to ripen (which is a month or more before we can expect local peaches in Louisville – if any survived late spring frost attacks) The Peach Truck runs a regular schedule with stops in Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania, providing those peach-deprived areas of early-season relief and chins sticky with runny peach juice.
Local fans of the Peach Truck lined their cars up around the block at Brownsboro Road Hardware a few weeks ago, waiting for the deliver from Pearson Farms in Fort Valley, Georgia, to arrive.
The Peach Truck’s next swing through Louisville will bring it to these locations tomorrow, June 13:
9-11 a.m. at Tractor Supply Co., 11250 Preston Hwy.
Noon – 2 p.m. at Wallitsch Nursery and Garden Center, 2608 Hikes Lane.
3-5 p.m. Southern Indiana customers can pick up peaches at Rural King, 2960 E. 10th St., Jeffersonville, Indiana.
Georgia Peaches are available by the 1/2 bushel (25 lb.) box, first come, first served, and when they are gone, all you can do is weep and wait to see if local growers have anything to bring in a few weeks. You can find more information about where it is stopping in Kentucky at thepeachtruck.com.
