Crafted By Southern Hands Is July 11 At Warehouse Row

Features The Peach Truck

Monday, June 29, 2015

Warehouse Row is celebrating summer with the return of its Crafted by Southern Hands event on Saturday, July 11, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., featuring a mix of homegrown flavors and summertime fun. A highlight of the annual event series, the Peach Truck will once again be making a one-day pit stop at Chattanooga’s Warehouse Row, bringing along its signature fresh, hand-picked freestone Georgia peaches for sampling and sale.  

“We don’t take it lightly when we say these are the best peaches you’ll ever have,” said Stephen Rose, owner of the Peach Truck. “Both our peaches and our company sprouted in Southern soil, giving the Peach Truck a rich connection to Southern cities like Chattanooga, where local-grown food and business have become a city specialty. Warehouse Row is a must-stop for us and the perfect complement to our fruit’s farm-fresh, Deep South flavor.” 

The Peach Truck’s peaches are planted and naturally ripened on the 130 year-old Pearson Farm in Crawford County, Ga. Founded in 2010, the Peach Truck’s story begins when a Southern gent, Stephen Rose— who grew up amongst the peach orchards of South Georgia— wanted to share his love of fresh peaches with his northern bride, Jessica, but found himself up against a “peach problem.” Faced with a shortage of tree-ripened, sun-sweetened Georgia peaches in their new Middle Tennessee hometown, the two traded in their car for a 1964 Jeep Gladiator and started selling the fresh fruit by the bagful out of their trunk. The rest is history with the Peach Truck now embarking on tours throughout Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. 

Aside from the produce on-hand, local-minded foodies at the Crafted by Southern Hands event will also be able to enjoy a variety of complimentary refreshments— all provided by local vendors, including homemade gelato from Milk & Honey. Additionally, pony rides, live music and more will bring the festivities to a head on the Warehouse Row lawn on the corner of Lindsay and 11th streets. 

“Crafted by Southern Hands is a celebration of the region’s rich handicraft— that which has been created by Southern hands, Southern fields and Southern hearts,” said George Krauth, vice president and creative director of Jamestown, the company that owns Warehouse Row. “This event features a strong line-up of local artisans, food vendors and festivities that will be a great draw for both kids and adults alike.”
