The Peach Truck is bringing sweet, juicy Georgia peaches to town on Saturday, June 15, at four, hour-long stops.

Peaches will be sold in 25-pound boxes for $42 each. Pecans, which are shelled and halved, will be $10 for a 10-ounce bag. Additionally, there will be copies of the new "Peach Truck Cookbook" for sale. It's filled with 100 delicious recipes for all things peaches.

Stephen and Jessica Rose started The Peach Truck after he moved to Nashville in 2010 and could not find the fresh, flavorful, juicy peaches he'd grown up with in Georgia. Partnering with Georgia peach growers, the Roses began a business bringing peaches straight from the farm to the consumer.

In 2012, the couple bought a '64 Jeep truck and started selling peaches out of the cab in Nashville. In five weeks, they had sold more than 10 tons of brown-bagged peaches. Since then, the Roses have spent their summers touring various states delivering Georgia peaches.
