The Purple Carrot Food Truck

The Purple Carrot Food Truck launched in 2013 as Michigan's First Farm to Truck food stand. Our goal is to serve innovative, creative and fresh cuisine by utilizing the abundance of flavors Michigan has to offer.  We work directly with the farmers who grow the food and buy it when it is ripe and at its peak to be served, because food is only as good as the ingredients you start with.

Our mission can be summed up by our tag line:
Eat Fresh. Eat Local.


We are getting a facelift on the truck, but don't worry we will have our full PCT menu for you to enjoy at Red Haven
