Looking for a red delicious way to celebrate Halloween? The Apple Truck, a Michigan-based fruit truck bringing fruit south, will make a stop in DeLand Sunday, Oct. 31.

Among the truck’s products are 20-pound boxes of apples.

“Our apples come from various multi-generational family orchards mostly in the Sparta area,” founder Dale Apley said. “This week’s box will consist of McIntosh and Honeycrisp apples. Additionally, we have half gallons of Honeycrisp Apple Cider.”

The Apple Truck, only in its first year of operation, prides itself on the sale of locally grown, non-GMO produce.

“Our partners use sustainable farming practices. They’re certified for taking the highest level of care of both the land and the apples grown on it,” Apley said. “In our view, there’s no question you can taste the difference between an apple grown with care and one grown without.”

The Apple Truck will visit DeLand 12:30-2 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 31, at DeLand High School, 800 N. Hill Ave.

The truck’s stop in DeLand is its only stop on Volusia County’s west side, but there are various other stops on the east side and in surrounding counties.
