The Chattanooga Food Center's local Food Map contains information on area farms, farmers markets, food artisans, community gardens, and restaurants sourcing local food - all within a 100 mile radius of our flagship Gaining Ground Grocery, located at 1918 Union Ave, in Downtown Chattanooga. We call this 100 mile radius area our "foodshed," much like a watershed. Our foodshed includes Southeast Tennessee, Northwest Georgia, and Northeast Alabama. The CFC created and manages this map as a bridge between local eaters and the rich bounty of local food that our region has to offer. It's our mission to increase access to local food, and that's easier to do when you know how to find it!
The Food Map contains local farms of all kinds, whether they grow conventionally, certified humane, organically or anything in between. We want to provide you with the information to make food decisions that are right for your family, your health, and your budget.
This map is based on Google Maps, which is easy to operate. Take a minute to open the map and explore different categories of the Food Guide. Try this: input your address in the search bar to see what locally-focused businesses are in your area - you might be surprised!
Note on Food Artisans and Restaurants: The Food Map relies on restaurants and food artisans to honestly disclose their use of local food products. Food and beverage artisans craft their product in our 100-mile radius. Some use exclusively local products, while others don't. Restaurants listed in the Food Map purchase from local farms and/or food and beverage artisans. Please reach out to local food artisans and restaurants directly with any questions.
