Take a look at some pointers on eating local this time of year from our friends at Tennessee Farm Fresh.

  1. Sprucing up the yard this spring? Remember local nurseries and greenhouses when purchasing your flowers. They often offer fruit and vegetable plants for your garden needs as well.
  2. Get ready for the local farmers markets! Many are open year round, but those that are not usually open in April or May.
  3. Many farmers offer sales straight from the farm. However, always call first to check hours and availability.
  4. With Tennessee weather, it is sometimes difficult to predict when strawberries, tomatoes and other favorites will be ready for harvest. Check a harvest calendar to know when to best expect your favorite produce.

These delicious products will be here and gone before we know it, so enjoy them while they last! Find a local farmer at
