Our first stop: The Farm Mobile.

What a fantastic idea!!!  Riverview Farms has brought the food to the people.  Having product even when the farmer’s markets were hibernating for the winter, Riverview Farms, decided to take it on the road.  They travel around the city and park in different locations for a few hours at a time and sell their goods.  Not only is the truck super hip (and about to run on solar power) it is chock full of delicious local foods, from meats and produce from Riverview to cookies and muffins from 13 Moons Bakery.  They also carry local made cheese from Sequatchie Cove Creamery, breads from Holeman and Finch, eggs from Gregg (a 13 year old boy running his own egg business, HOW AWESOME), to local made jams and pestos. The folks aboard are knowledgeable and friendly. It is a one-stop shop; you can get everything you need for a meal right there!

We purchased some incredible radishes and salad turnips, which were something new to me, and ended up being rather sweet and yummy (my mother would be proud!!!).  We also picked up some beautiful kale and Berkshire pork sausage.  Which we ended up making a wonderful winter pasta dish with these ingredients plus a few staples and pantry items.  We also made some Yummy Juice, my son Ethan’s favorite juice, with carrots, kale, apples, and oranges!  What a great food day! Thanks Farm Mobile!!!
