‘Farm to Table’ dinner event to showcase locally grown food
The third annual Farm to Table dinner in downtown Savannah, hosted by Hardin County Convention and Visitors Bureau, will feature a Farmers Market themed event focusing on community connection, locally grown food awareness and a fun, fall celebration.
The outdoor dinner takes place Tuesday, Oct. 9 against the backdrop of downtown Savannah, on the site of River City Farmers Market on Court Square and near the future market site now under construction.
“We love the idea of gathering in the fall, when the air is crisp and folks will enjoy an outdoor gathering,” says Beth Pippin, Hardin County Tourism Director. “It’s a perfect fit for a celebration of combining good food, good friends for a good cause. Our local farmers and bakers come together with the 4-H kids to share food and fellowship. Any time spent on educating our youth is time well spent.”
The menu is comprised of regional and seasonal whole food, featuring locally raised pastured pork, sourced from Morningside Farms TN-Go-Meats. Various local growers, Lucas Farms, Coach’s Kitchen, and Sunflower Farms will provide the organic produce.
Kings of Cooks Catering is preparing the meal. Local UT Extension and 4-H teams are preparing the appetizers. Guests will enjoy meats, veggies, breads, cheeses, and delicious desserts including treats from fried pie vendor Wanda Cherry, Oak Grove Hill scones, and cakes from church ladies.
The City of Savannah will display plans for the soon-to-be completed Farmers Market building on the old Farris Hotel site on Main Street.
All event proceeds support the local 4-H program. Tickets for the third annual farm to table dinner are now for sale at the Tennessee River Museum, 495 Main St., in downtown Savannah.
Seating is open at 5:30 p.m. for drinks and appetizers, with dinner to be served at 6 p.m.

I never realized Savannah was that small! We always go into Savannah when we visit Hilton Head and I just assumed it was larger. Who knew? ? Great video with great info!!
