2019 Schedule

Eastern Market: Sundays from 10am-4pm

Wayne State Farmers Market: Wednesdays from 10am-3pm

Our 1971 Serro Scotty coffee caboose has been serving the Michigan community for nearly four years! We found it on Craigslist and gave it a Drifter-style renovation. Since then, the caboose has been a part of Eastern Market, Wayne State Farmers Market, Mo Pop Festival, weddings, birthdays, and other community events!

We can bring drip coffee, pour overs, iced coffee, teas, hot cocoa, and other specials. Just check out the menu! Even when we’re not in the caboose, you can visit us at our brick-and-mortar shop.

Want to rent the caboose for your event? Read the info below and send us an email at

We have answers to questions you want to know!

A: We have a 30-person minimum for catering and our price is $2.50 per person for coffee. This includes cups, cream, coconut milk and sugar. We also will charge $.50 per mile for travel. We currently don’t have a maximum limit, but let’s talk details!

 A: For booking the caboose, we have a $100 service charge per event. There will be a charge of $4/person and we have a 100-person minimum. We also charge $.50 per mile for gas.
