Featuring (and Many Thanks to)…. 

All beautiful and colorful wine and water glasses are made by Prentice Hicks and donated for use during this dinner.  They can be taken home to drink from and brighten your every day.  They are 2nds and specially priced.  Please ask for prices

Awesome mugs/beautiful vases, plates and some serving bowls are made by Anderson Bailey, and are also donated for use during this dinner. They are the elegant, mostly white pieces.  They too can be taken home.  Please ask for prices.

Of course this dinner would have been nothing but empty plates and stomachs without our dedicated and hardworking farmers and food artisans- Tant Hill Farm, Crabtree Farm, Fall Creek Farm, Sequatchie Cove Farm and Creamery, Circle S 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.

Thanks to our gracious hosts Jessica, Andrew, and Montgomery Gage for sharing their beautiful space with all of us.

 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
