Nashville LGBT Chamber Celebrates The Turnip Truck’s Charlotte Location 

with Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Grand Opening, One Year Delayed

Nashville, TN - March 24, 2021 - The Nashville LGBT Chamber held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, March 24th to celebrate their longtime member and certified LGBT Business Enterprise, The Turnip Truck, celebrating the one-year anniversary of their Charlotte Avenue location. The COVID-19 pandemic did not allow for a grand opening and ribbon-cutting when the store first opened in March of 2020. 

Founded by John Dyke in 2001, the Turnip Truck is Nashville’s only full-service, locally owned natural foods grocer. As the name implies, their store has farming roots, which run through every facet of operations. With three stores in the heart of Nashville, the Turnip Truck brings the seasonal bounty of area farms to our neighbors in the city. Their shelves are stocked with the highest quality natural, local and organic foods available. In addition, they are devoted to fostering the success of area farmers and producers, nurturing the future of our food supply.


The Turnip Truck is celebrating a huge milestone in May of 2021, celebrating 20 years in business! We are proud of the work they continue to do in our community, and their commitment to the Nashville LGBT Chamber, and our mission of promoting diversity and equality in the workplace and society. 

“We are so proud of John as an LGBT certified business owner, setting an example of what a diversity-owned business can accomplish and do,” said Joe Woolley, CEO of the Nashville LGBT Chamber. “The Turnip Truck team is the perfect example of an inclusive and welcoming workplace and one that strives to make sure every customer is welcome and can be their true self while shopping. They also are producing quality products and make you feel at home when you are there.”
