The Northwest Tennessee Local Food Network’s Local Food Guide is the definitive resource for finding local food in Northwest Tennessee.

Find area farmers markets, family farms, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA’s), u-pick farms, agri-tourism, animal goods, artisan foods, local food trucks, processors, beekeepers, locally-owned plant vendors and additional food resources.

Eating local is one of the best ways to stay healthy, nourish the people you love, and support your community,” said NWTN Local Food Network Director Samantha Goyret.

“As our farmers and local food businesses are working hard to bring us the best quality food — the food guide is an effort to celebrate homegrown pride, local foods, and bring communities together around healthy eating,” she added.

The Northwest Tennessee Local Food Guide is a magazine that not only features stories about our bountiful region, but is produced 100% locally in collaboration with the staff and volunteers of the Northwest Tennessee Local Food Network, designed and published by the Weakley County Press, and printed at The Messenger.

“The staff of the Weakley County Press is dedicated to partnerships with communities across our region who make a positive impact for our area. We were honored to be a part of the Local Food Network’s first food guide and we are proud to support and promote our farmers and small, local businesses,” Weakley County Press General Manager Lynette Wagster said.
