Full-service Natural Grocer - Edit

Turnip Truck had a large produce dept, as well as deli with salad bar, meat dept and extensive grocery, frozen, bulk foods, and health and beauty dept's. We just stopped in to grab a few snacks, for the road. But the overall selection was pretty good, and we were so grateful to have access to a grocer in East Nashville with some natural options.

Pros: Friendly, Full-service Natural Grocer

Cons: None

Best Salad Bar and Bulk Food Options - Edit

I work near the Turnip Trunk in East Nashville and frequent the salad bar for lunch. There are so many great options (I could end up spending WAY more money on salad than I should if I had less self-control) including vegan: orzo salad, bulgur salad, sushi, stuffed grape leaves AND MORE! It is $8.99/lb which is a pretty good deal if you can control your inevitable urge to fill up 2 entire containers with yummy food. They always have a soup or two that are vegan friendly. Their bulk foods (quinoa, almonds, etc.) are 10% off on Wednesdays, which makes for a great deal if you ever shop in bulk. Lots of vegan products in the store that I haven't even tried yet, but looking forward to eating my way through the aisles and trying everything :)

TIP: If you bring in your own coffee mug/cup you can fill it up for ONLY $0.90 and they have SOY milk for you!

Pros: Vegan Friendly Salad Bar, Healthy Options

Great finds - Edit

I like coming here for groceries or to-go lunches. Everything seems fairly priced and it's a good place to find items you might overlook at a larger veggie-friendly grocery store. Their selection of beverages is great too.

I guess my only complaint would be that they seem to put sprouts on EVERY wrap/sandwich. Even if it's not listed in the ingredients, there's probably sprouts on that curry tofu wrap.

Pros: Fair prices, Sandwiches, Vegan snacks

Cons: Sprouts

New Favorite - Edit

There are 2 Turnip Trucks in Nashville and interestingly the smaller store has what I most desire - locally produced products like baked, organic, Vegan (no dairy products) breads, coffees, fresh produce. So two main reasons for shopping here - is supporting the local economy.
The larger store has more products, but I couldn't find my favorite bread there - like that sold at the smaller store(?).
The Vegan type foods selection is small at both stores (but I politely annoy the staff now and then, so maybe this will change?).

Pros: Local owned, Local products

Cons: Few Vegan foods

This place is heaven! - Edit

I absolutly love the Turnip Truck! Staff was super nice, produce was beautiful and fresh. Killer amount of vegan groceries, and my cat's food (Pet Promise). It feels better shopping there rather than fighting Whole Foods traffic! I could have spent all day there. Great selection, great vibe, and great food!

Pros: awesome inventory, friendly staff, great location

Cool place - Edit

Easy to find with a nice selection of stuff. Store is a little cramped, but that's no big deal. I didn't stay long (I was travelling through), so I don't know much about prices, but the vegan sandwiches they had prepared looked pretty good.
