Harvest Local Foods is a locally sourced specialty grocery store located on the square in Manchester. We opened our doors on Dec. 6. We have close to 35 vendors – all from Tennessee with almost half of our vendors from Coffee County.
Our products include local pasture-raised beef, pork, chicken, and eggs, locally-grown seasonal produce, cheeses, milk, tempeh, coconut and water kefir, kraut, kimchi, tonics, jams, jellies, baking mixes, breads, canned goods, snacks, candy, coffee, ready-to-eat prepared dishes, handcrafted items, and body care products.
This is merely our starting point, and we definitely intend on growing. Items we plan to carry in the very near future are herbal teas, kombucha, and goats milk. As warmer weather approaches, we will have much more produce available as well. We will continue to grow from there.
One of the most frequently asked questions is “do we have honey?” The answer is not right now, but we are on an exhaustive search for some local honey. In general, less honey is available in the winter, but overall the production has decreased in the past few years. I highly encourage everyone to improve local conditions for the bees and let the natural pollinizers, such as white clover and Tennessee wild violets, grow. | Click here to follow us on Instagram!
