I can't fully understand this sentence, could you describe it a little clearer :

"from delicious restaurant fare to tasty food trucks to grocery stores stocked with produce grown nearby."

restaurant fare = food served at restaurants
food trucks = trucks/vans that sell takeaway food
produce grown nearby = food items grown in the local area

The sentence uses the construction from this to that to something else. The specific items in this case are "delicious restaurant fare", "tasty food trucks" and "grocery stores". The latter are stocked with produce​ (fruits and vegetables) that was grown by growers in the area.

"produce grown nearby" = "produce that is grown nearby". The words "that is" are optional.
