Featuring (and Many Thanks to)…. 

-All beautiful and colorful wine glasses and water glasses are made by Prentice Hicks and donated for use during this dinner.  They can be taken home, if desired, for $20 a cup and $25 a wine glass

-Various bowls (big and small), plates, and vases (small and big) are made by Anderson Bailey, and are also donated for use during this dinner.  They may be taken home as well, please ask for prices. 

-A few of the plates and vases are made by Danielle Fox.  Unfortunately there was a mishap in her last firing and she was not able to donate as many pieces (beautiful serving bowls) as we hoped.  Her few pieces are donated for use tonight and available for purchase as well. 

-All flowers are done by our gracious and talented hostess Eleanor Cooper. 

-Of course this dinner would have been nothing but empty plates and stomachs without our dedicated and hardworking farmers- William’s Island Farm, Sequatchie Cove Farm and Creamery, Circle S Farm, Signal Mountain Farm, Sale Creek Honey, and Crabtree Farm were all extremely important in the making of this dinner.  They are all at Main Street Farmer’s Market- along with many other farms producing equally delicious produce and meat.

And last, but decidedly not least- Many thanks to all of you, the eaters, who choose to make this community better and more alive everyday.  I look forward to seeing you all at the Main Street Farmers Market throughout the season!
