I don’t think there is a better time than the present to embrace real Southern comfort food like stick-to-your-ribs grits or smothered ribs or, this week’s Chattanooga Brewing featured side dish—Crabtree Farms’ Collard Greens, cooked in juices from Pig Mountain’s hammocks and Fall Creek Farms’ onions.
As I have stated that my borderline Yankee, Maryland-born self has kept me from enjoying delicious dishes like this until my adult life, I’m definitely making up for lost time. Thankfully during this stressful time when I’m not feeling up to cooking after the market, I can place an order to go from Chatt Brew and enjoy it in the comforts of my farmstead.
Don’t forget to support the newest addition to the decade-long market, our friends at Chatt Brew as their small business sized staff of ten have suffered due to the limitations restaurants have had to implement such as shutting down their dining rooms and providing to go only.
You can show some love to our new home & longtime friends by simply ordering to go food or snagging a growler or six pack to take home. Chatt Brew was donating 10% of their Wednesday sales to our food focused non-profit but we have decided to return the love and donate that money back to their staff. So load up on take out.
Any tip you leave when you order also goes to their non-visible staff as they are sharing the tips amongst everyone, whether they worked that day or not. If you can’t get there to leave a physical tip, you can leave a “virtual tip” through their Venmo Acct @ChattBrewTips.
Anyway you can, support the market or support the brewery, all your love for local is what keeps this community alive. We hope that whatever your comfort food is that you can enjoy it without worry and savor the slow food (and drink) movement in good spirits. #EatLocalDrinkLocal
