The Fruit Truck is back-

The best place to buy fresh fruit and vegetables is, hands down, this truck. Maria has been selling produce off Ainslie and Kedzie (right next to the brand new traffic lights) for 15 years. Maria and her daughter drive down from a local farm in Michigan every morning, but from what farm, she won't say. Maria is shy, refuses to answer any of my questions, and has her daughter do all the talking for her english-speaking customers. The prices border on cheap- but the fruit is anything but. Today I purchased some cherries and rasperries, and both are so soft, juicy and sweet. Much better than Jewel, HarvesTime, and Andy's Fruit Ranch.

Maria also sells large sunflowers.

  1. I pass this truck many times a week; we live on Spaulding by the school. Next time...fruit!
