How many times have you wanted to go to a Farmer’s market only to miss the short window of time they are actually open? Even worse, what if the one good farmer’s market in town is 30 miles away and only open for 3 hours a week? Truckin’ Tomato aims to solve both of those problems by taking the farmer’s market directly to the customers.
We will do this by selling locally grown produce, food products, and merchandise on a 30 ft. trailer transformed into a mobile market that is parked on the campuses of businesses, large parks, apartment complexes and special events of San Antonio and the surrounding area.
Truckin’ Tomato isn’t just an innovative concept to make locally grown produce more accessible in San Antonio. It’s also a social enterprise model, driving revenue to non profits dedicated to fighting hunger and poverty. For our first trailer, we have partnered with the Christian Hope Resource Center (CHRC), who provides food and other social services to 2,500 households every month! .
We like to say that when you shop at Truckin’ Tomato you will eat well and do good at the same time. In addition to raising money for our non-profit partners, we hope to raise awareness about the great work they are doing so they can grow their support base.
We are outfitting a 30 ft. cargo trailer that will be pulled by a heavy duty pick up truck. Our model is all about innovation. We searched the globe and there simply isn’t anything like our trailer. 20 ft. or produce display shelves, a bakery display case, 3 sink compartment and walk-in cooler are just of few of the creative features on our mobile market.
Our trailer is being built by the amazing people at Texas Cart Builder out of Houston. They have built food trucks for Whole Foods, Boomerangs, and several other successful food truck businesses.
We exist to make healthy eating as convenient as possible by bringing the farmer’s market directly to you. Look for our mobile farmer’s market trailer at a location near you!
