The Peach Truck is coming to Dayton June 26

Get your peaches! The Peach Truck is back and coming to a city near you

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

>> Local venue reopens with cautious optimism

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 Tuesday, June 23

>> Here’s what happened when local restaurant patios reopened for lunch Friday

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 Dayton, Hamilton, Kettering, Middletown, Beavercreek, Miamisburg, Xenia, Fairborn, Huber Heights, New Carlisle, 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

The Peach Truck is making stops in Dayton's key communities. Get your fresh Georgia peaches in Kettering, Beavercreek, Miamisburg, Xenia, Fairborn, Huber Heights, New Carlisle, Troy and more.
