FOUNDED BY JOHN DYKE IN 2001, Turnip Truck is Nashville’s only full service, locally owned natural foods grocer. Our farming roots run through every facet of the store’s operations. We believe in the simple, timeless power of ethically grown, locally harvested food. With two stores in the heart of Nashville, Turnip Truck brings the seasonal bounty of area farms to our neighbors in the city.

We offer the freshest natural, local and organic foods available in this region.  By sourcing as much food as possible from local farmers, we are investing in the future of our food supply.

OUR MISSION

TURNIP TRUCK EXISTS TO NOURISH OUR COMMUNITIES BY OFFERING THE HIGHEST QUALITY LOCAL, NATURAL AND ORGANIC FOOD AVAILABLE.

FRESHNESS
The closer your food is harvested, the fresher it is when it reaches your table. Fresh food not only tastes better, it is often more nutritious.

COMMUNITY
Local growers and producers are the heart and soul of our food system. We at Turnip Truck value our relationships with farmers, and we set out to help connect them with the communities we serve.

TRANSPARENCY
By entrusting our food needs to local farmers – our friends and neighbors – we know the source and quality of our merchandise.

Our Founder
Our Founder
John Dyke originally hails from a working family farm in Greeneville, Tennessee, but he has hung his hat in East Nashville for more than two decades. Upon settling in the heart of the city, John realized how much he missed the fresh produce he had become accustomed to as a child. Inspired and encouraged by neighbors who craved the same natural goodness, he set out to bring the bounty of the farm to town. John opened his first store in East Nashville’s 5 Points neighborhood in 2001 and has been serving Nashville ever since. A champion for independent farmers, John is committed to revealing the timeless wisdom of eating “real food.” The store’s cheeky name underscores his mission to bring farmers the respect and support they deserve.
