A fruit truck known for traveling the country with fresh Florida strawberries  is making a stop in St. Joseph next weekend.

"The Fruit Truck" will be making nearly 60 stops in Minnesota this month including the stop in St. Joseph on Sunday, March 10th from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.. The truck will appear at Neighbors Route 75 Bar and Grill.

Customers are asked to make a reservation to buy the fruit but do not need to pay until they get to the truck. An approximately 8-9 pound "farmer's box" of strawberries will cost $30. Cash, Venmo and checks will be accepted at the time of purchase.

You can also sign up to be alerted when the truck is in town to plan your fresh produce purchases.

The Fruit Truck sells the fruit in bulk because, according to the FAQ on their website:

This is the key to keeping the cost low. We buy fruit by the flat directly from the farms. Instead of breaking the fruit down into smaller packages, we deliver the fruit directly to you.

Breaking down the lsarger flats and offering smaller packages would require different licensing, USDA certified facilities and more packaging material. This would lead to higher prices and a significant delay in getting the freshest fruit to you.
