Tennessee Home & Farm’s Guide to Spring
Ahh, spring. One of the best times to be in Tennessee. Whether you’re a several-generations local or just stopping by for a visit, the state offers up a variety of seasonal things to do, places to be seen and food to be devoured. That includes local attractions and restaurants – plus the food and fun found in your own backyard. Read on for our spring guide of some of Tennessee’s best seasonal stops, recipes, gardening tips, festivals, events and more.
With the weather finally warming up, fresh produce and patios are calling your name. In Shelbyville, Urban Plantation is owned by a mother-daughter team who like to switch it up with seasonal offerings, like a leg of lamb for Easter. Memphis’ Trolley Stop Market loves local, using fresh ingredients that were grown or produced within a 100-mile radius for its tasty fare, and you can celebrate strawberry season with strawberry shortcake featuring fresh berries at the Mindfield Grill in Brownsville.
If you’re looking to test your own culinary skills, pick some of spring’s in-season offerings, like carrots, strawberries, greens, asparagus and more. We even have tips on how to make the most of your farmers market trip, figure out what’s in season, and a Mother’s Day or graduation brunch menu that uses your fresh bounty.
