Spud: More than a potato

Staff report

Amy Edgett / Sierra Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — Memorial Day weekend heralds the return of Spud's fresh fruit and veggie stand at the far east end of downtown Truckee. "Spud" Pribble went in search of the perfect tomato more than 25 years ago, and is now a fixture weekends with his haul of seasonal produce, hand selected from more than 20 farms in the foothills and beyond.

Granddaughter KayDee Meeko and employee / family friend Laurie Denham will be there, as per usual. Drop by Saturday, 8 a.m.-6 p.m. or Sunday 8 a.m.-5 p.m. The stand does not operate Memorial Day.
