There are lots of peach trucks in Texas, but we don't have The Peach Truck.
That's the name of Jessica and Stephen Rose's rolling peach stand that started bringing Georgia peaches to their farmers markets (and local restaurants) in Nashville in 2012.
Now, the couple has a new cookbook and a national tour to bring those peaches to nine states, including Texas.
The Peach Truck will have two pop-up peach sales sites in Austin on Tuesday. From 1 to 2 p.m., you can find the peaches sold by the 25-pound box at Austin's Couch Potatoes South, 500 E Ben White Blvd. #200, and at the Dart Bowl, 5700 Grover Ave., and from 3 to 5 p.m., they'll be at Main Event, 13301 U.S. 183 North. They'll also be selling 10 ounces of Georgia pecans for $10.
They'll also be selling the cookbook, which includes all the peach recipes you'd need for this time of year, such as this peach caprese salad.
You can find a full list of tour stops on their website, thepeachtruck.com.
