Last Sunday’s Scenic City Wing event offered Market patrons a sampling of wings from 6 of the best wing-makers in our area. The event, sponsored by Springer Mountain Farms, is one of the more popular events at Chattanooga Market. It brings thousands of hungry chicken wing fans out to support the Chattanooga Area Food Bank, who received 100% of the proceeds. For the fourth consecutive year, local restaurants Feed Table & Tavern and 1885 Grill have received People’s Choice and Judge’s choice awards (some years it has been the reverse). A World Food Championship Golden ticket will be awarded to the chefs to compete in November at the national food sporing event.
Miguel Morales, owner of both Feed and 1885, says “Each year our teams take this event very seriously and involve their whole families. We have staff, their spouses, and their kids pitching in to work together and try to ‘hold on to the trophy’. We are certainly blessed to have won another year. But (for us) the big win is coming together as a family to work together and support our local area food bank. This is such a great event!”
Next up this Sunday, September 30th at Chattanooga Market is the first Apple Festival. Fall produce is beginning to come in and the apple is just the beginning. Market vendors will be celebrating by incorporating apples into their food and art products. The opportunities are endless: apple strudel, apple sauce, salads, and more.
