Park yourself at the Skarsgard Farms Harvest Truck tomorrow morning

The newest food truck to cruise through Albuquerque is also the freshest: The Harvest Truck is an enticing prepared foods project from Skarsgard Farms (née Los Poblanos Organics) CSA, offering a weekly changing lineup of burritos, salads, sandwiches and smoothies—in some cases, made with ingredients pulled from the ground that very morning. For now, the Harvest happens at Los Ranchos Growers’ Market on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m.
