Stuff the Truck
The Krit Stubblefield Stuff the Truck for Need Line event has been taking place one weekend every July since 2015. A local automobile dealer, Toyota of Murray, kindly donates a new truck for the day so we can ‘stuff it’ with fresh produce. Market customers are encouraged to purchase extra during the day and put it in the bed of the truck. After the market closes, the farmers will donate what is left for the day.
