We're hosting a special Fall Break PoP Club tomorrow, 10/10, at the @marketsquarefarmersmarket ! Kids ages 2-12 can try fruits and veggies 🍏, earn some PoP bucks💰, and do some crafts🖍 at the market! Come celebrate your day off with us at the market! 🎃🍁

Today’s #localfoodhero is Savannah Jones, Owner of Jones Meat Sales. Savannah’s our youngest hero by far- she started developing her own meat company when she was only 14! Now a junior at Union County High School, Savannah sells beef and pork at two farmers’ markets and at her home. She says her dad was the biggest inspiration for her business – he’s been farming since he was in high school. Nowadays, Savannah can be found doing farm work and homework, working with her show animals, going to 4-H meetings and events, attending livestock judging team practice, and more. After she graduates from Union County High School, Savannah plans to go to college and study agriculture. We’re beyond impressed with Savannah’s dedication, not to mention her time management skills!
You can find Savannah and her products at the Union County Farmers’ Market on Saturday mornings from 9 to 12 at Wilson Park in Maynardville. The producer-only market has a wide array of products to offer, so you can get baked goods, dairy, eggs, fruits, veggies, and more after you pick up beef & pork from Jones Meat Sales. The market also accept credit cards, SNAP benefits, and Fresh Savings tokens. Savannah says her favorite part of the market is how helpful everyone there is. We hope you’ll go support Savannah and her fellow vendors there!

Happy first day of fall! Farmers’ Markets are still going strong all over East Tennessee, where you’ll find every kind of gourd and winter squash for eating or decorating!

PoP Club is coming up this Thursday at the New Harvest Park Farmers' Market! Kids ages 2-12 can try tasty, in-season fruits and veggies from the market, complete fun crafts and activities, and earn $5 PoP bucks to spend on fresh produce. It's a great way to get kids involved in Knoxville's flourishing local food system and for them to purchase their own fruits and veggies. This PoP Club is made possible thanks to support from @threeriversmarket 🍅

SWEEPSTAKES : It’s the year of the goat, as far as Nourish Knoxville’s merchandise is concerned! We’re grateful for all of our vendors who bring goat milk-based products to market. 🍶🧀 🛁 if you’re a fan of goats and their products too, tag a friend for the chance to win this lovely poster by @ashton_ludden!

According to #localfoodhero, Chef John Bryant, something special is happening in Upper East Tennessee. Johnson City bridges the gap in our mountain heritage between the high country of Asheville and the foothills of Knoxville. And Chef Bryant is one of the key-players in their ever growing and expanding local food movement.

Chef Bryant was born and raised in Johnson City where he spent his childhood composting, preserving, and practicing sustainable agriculture. His first job in the food industry was a dishwasher. Now, he’s the Executive Chef at Gourmet and Company; whose mission is to implement locally grown, raised, produced, and crafted ingredients into an upscale dining experience while working with the community to create a locally, sustainable food system. His plateware is even locally-made! (and you should totally watch the video on his FB page!) He's actively involved in Jonesborough Locally Grown, leads cooking demos at the farmers’ market, and prepares meals for the 100 Mile Dinners with the Boone Street Market. Chef Bryant believes genetically-modified food and industrial food production adversely impact our health, so he strives to purchase as much food locally as possible.
So, make a point to visit Chef Bryant at Gourmet and Company the next time you’re in Johnson City. We hope these secret gems in East Tennessee (who’ve put in countless hours to support and promote their local food community) will start putting Johnson City on the map for a great local food town!

Big shoutouts to the following growers and producers used by Chef Bryant: Sunset View Farm, Grand Oak Farm, Serenity Knoll Farm, Foodtopia, Southern Culture, Benton's Smoky Mountain Country Hams, Rain Crow Farm, Walnut Kitchen Butcher, Brasstown Beef, Southern Natural Farms, Sunburst Trout FarmsThree Graces Dairy, and Simpson's Meats.
