Of course this dinner would have been nothing but empty plates and stomachs without our dedicated and hardworking farmers and food artisans- William’s Island Farm, Sequatchie Cove Farm and Creamery, Signal Mountain Farm, Crabtree Farm, Circle S Farm, Pocket Farm, Riverview Farm, Creekridge Farm, and Fall Creek 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 supporters of local farmers and craftspeople. You choose to make this community better and more alive every day. I look forward to seeing you all at the Main Street Farmers Market throughout the season!
