No Kroger. Greenlife was a locally owned "Organic" food store. Whole Foods bought them out a couple of years ago. There are some farm and market coops like Sequatchie Farms and one over in East Lake (can't remember the name right now). Also there is a new locally owned Local and Organic grocery coming to Main Street called Enzo's Market. Really looking forward to that. Fresh Market is more upscale than Whole Foods but does not specialize in the locally grown and organic foods. There is NO WAY the apples in Fresh Market could be that big and shinny without DDT's .

sounds great ..for the city it's size, is seems Chattanooga has more than it's share of upscale places to drop inordinate sums of money on food..good to hear!

Can one contract directly with any local green farmers or cattle farmers to buy meat and produce directly from them?

Can you imagine what a freshly slaughtered sirloin would taste like?

Yes, I'm told our grocery costs are higher than other cities but have nothing to compare it to myself.

12buttons,
If you're looking for a good listing of local food producers (vegetables, meat, eggs, etc.), I suggest you take a look at Crabtree Farms web site .....crabtreefarms.org.... and review the listing of farmers, restaurants, etc. that promote a healthy, natural lifestyle. Also has some listing for farms that offer "shares" in their output. Look it over; I think you'll be pleasantly suprised.
Rick

Village Market is on the campus of Southern Adventist University, just east of Collegedale. Adventists should not eat pork or other meats prohibited in the Old Testament, and are taught that a vegetarian diet is best. Their market is an EXCELLENT source of natural vegetarian products and meat substitutes. It is open Sunday-Friday (closed on the Sabbath, or Saturday).

for fresh meat, dairy, etc...check out sequatchie cove....they come to Chattanooga twice a week ..Free Range Meat | Grass Fed Beef & Lamb | Pasture Raised and Forested Pork | Sequatchie Cove Farm

also, Every Wednesday is usually the Market on Main, which is mostly meats and dairy. Brainerd Market will be starting again for fresh from the farm, and so will the Chattanooga Market.
