Gaining Ground, , whose members will educate market-goers about their Harvested Here local food certification program. The program is a part of a growing movement of local growers, sellers and others who are committed to increasing the production and consumption of local food in the Chattanooga region. When people shop at Chattanooga Market and other local farmers' markets, the Harvested Here label signifies that the food being sold there was grown or raised within 100 miles of Chattanooga. "Through opportunities like Celebrate Local Food Day at the Chatt Market, we can recognize that not only is local food better for our health, it's also better for our local economy and environment.
At Chattanooga Market, Harvested Here will host several local groups who will be on hand to demonstrate their involvement in Chattanooga's food community such as: Slow Food Chattanooga, St. Andrews Community Garden, Fair Share, Chattanooga area Food Bank, Crabtree Farms, St. Alban's Farmers Market, Signal Mountain Farmers Market, Brainerd Farmers Market, Main Street Farmers Market, Chattanooga Sustainable Farmers, Land Trust for Tennessee, Creative Discovery Museum, and Gaining Ground
Additionally, at 11:30am, 212 Market will have a cooking demonstration/sampling event and Hennen's will offer the same at 12:30pm, both using fresh local ingredients from the Market.
Live music on the EPB stage for Sunday will be David Elliott at 12:30 and Mark Kelly Hall at 2:00.
