The Turnip Truck

The people of Nashville love their Publix and Whole Foods, but The Turnip Truck deserves the title of Best Market. The locally owned store has two locations and places a serious emphasis on sourcing locally. Reviewer Jason King said, “This is a nice natural food store with some great ready-to-eat meal options. The prices are reasonable (especially when compared to other natural food markets), and they always seem to have demos and samples out.”

Thank you note from the Turnip Truck: “WOW. Thank you, loyal customers, for supporting our dream of bringing local, organic food to Nashville. You did this!!!”
