There is a new trend in the restaurant world…Farm to Table.
Other communities around the world in Asia, Africa, South America, Europe, all embrace the local produce and create unique eating experiences through what’s on hand. These cultures go to local markets, pick up their produce, and return to the kitchen to cook. No longer do people want mass-produced foods and heavily hormone enriched proteins, but instead they turn towards organic, grass fed, local, and farm raised ingredients.
Presently, Farmers’ Markets are THE place to be and West Tennessee has so many different places for people to buy fresh ingredients every day in the week. Whether you are a cook or not, you can enjoy the local foods of the region either in the comfort of your home or out at a restaurant. Overton Square, for example, is booming with the farm to table restaurants.
