Shop Local Ingredients at Chattanooga Farmers Markets
We at Public House are proud to offer local ingredients from such great neighbors and farmers as Pickett's Ranch, Barton Creek Farms, Williams Island Farm, Barton Creek Farms, Lee & Gordon Greens, Signal Mtn. Farms, Walden Farms, and Bonnie Blue Farms. We know what a difference it makes to the local economy, heritage, and flavor of our recipes to source them in our own back yard. It can make just as big a difference in your own kitchen. There are plenty of great markets where you can buy produce, meat, dairy products, and more from some of the same farmers who supply Public House. If you are wondering where to get the jump on your spring grocery shopping, try these locations near your home or work:
Main Street Farmer's Market -- On April 3, 2013 the Main Street Market returns to its spring hours from 4-6PM each Wednesday at 325 East Main Street. The Main Street Market's website will let you know what's in season so you can start menu planning around your CSA share, or simply know what is available to pick up for spontaneous weeknight dinners. There is also a great catologue of recipes that will give you delicious idea for both familiar and unfamiliar ingredients. Get to know your veggies from kale to kohlrabi and get adventerous in the kitchen.
Brainerd Farmer's Market -- The Brainerd Farmers Market runs all spring and summer long on Saturdays from 10 am to 12 pm at Grace Episcopal Church at the corner of Brainerd Road and Belvoir Avenue. For those who live and work in Brainerd, East Brainerd, and further afield this may be a more convenient location than the Southside markets.
Signal Mountain Farmer's Market -- Thursdays from 4-6 at 2815 Anderson Pike, Signal Mountain, TN. Visit their Facebook page to see what produce, meats, seeds, trees, soaps and more will be available each week.
The Chattanooga Market -- In-Season Sundays, April-December from 11-4 at First Tennessee Pavilion, 1826 Reggie White Boulevard. This is the biggest of the Chattanooga markets, featuring not only produce, meat, and eggs, but also plenty of crafts, artisans, and other vendors with everything from clothes to jewlery to yard ornaments and more. Food trucks, arts 'n'crafts, brewers, live music and dance performances, and potted plants are also featured.
