The City of San Antonio is teaming up with Truckin' Tomato, the roving farmers market with stops along most parts of the area, to launch a Farm to Work program for downtown denizens. As of Tuesday, February 3, the truck will park at the corner of South Main and East Houston every other Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. offering produce bundles and locally made craft goods, juices and meals. 

Bundles start at $16.50 for a small local produce bag of 5 to 7 pounds of fruits and veggies from a list of partner farms and go up to a family size Lone Star farm box for $41.95. Shaun Lee, founder of the Truckin' Tomato, recommended ordering bundles online at least 48 hours in advance to guarantee availability. 



For those who aren't downtown between the new set hours, Truckin' Tomato recently launched a home delivery service Tuesday through Saturday with a $5 delivery fee and $25 minimum order to these zip codes
