Food trucks may conjure up images of hot dog vans, donuts, those wee little Danish pancakes and spiral crispy potatoes on a stick. That's where Nature's Nosh is different.

Nature's Nosh, as the name suggests, is a food truck with a much healthier twist. Using mother nature's fruit and vegetables grown on the Mornington Peninsula, Nature's Nosh is set to change the way you think about street food in Melbourne.

Managed and operated by Amy Perkin, a qualified nutritionist, the big green food truck you see currently positioned at Wells Street Farmers Market in Frankston every Thursday, serves delicious raw, organic, refined-sugar-free and vegan delicacies.

Each week, Amy collects in-season produce from her Mornington Peninsula farm supplier. Amy uses her knowledge in nutrition and cuisine creativity to offer an array of sweet and savouries, using the ingredients given to her on a weekly basis. What this means to you as a patron, is the variety in offerings every time you visit Nature's Nosh. You can expect to choose one or two hot food dishes, a salad or side dish, hot and cold drinks, and a selection of raw desserts. For example:

Raw banana bread

Nature's Nosh serves up at Wells Street Market in Frankston every Thursday between 8am and 2pm, unless the weather is forecast for high winds. You can't miss the truck, she's a big green van covered in faux grass and decorated with a cute burlap bunting!

In addition to Wells Street, Amy takes Nature's Nosh on regular excursions serving healthy food to market goers across Melbourne. You can also find Nature's Nosh raw treats for sale in the new cafe located in the foyer of Frankston Library on Playne Street behind Frankston Arts Centre.
