This week meteorologist Melissa Hall is in Fayetteville at the Farmer's Table, where they are taking locally sourced to a whole new level.
The Farmer's Table not only helps support our local community by buying fresh local foods that are from a sustainable source, but are also using these ingredients to cook up your favorite dishes. Some have a little twist.
The goal of owners Rob and Adrienne Shaunfield was to make delicious food that is not only healthy for our bodies, but also helpful to the community they love so much. They have onsite gardens that are being continually built to use for food in recipes, but also as a snack for those walking by.
You'll feel like you're at home inside the Farmer's Table. The welcoming environment has a chalkboard on the wall with a list of all the local little vendors that they consider part of their family. Everything around the restaurant has the Earth and our future generations in mind from the compost to their cloth napkins.
As you can imagine, their fresh take on food comes with the season too, with seasonal fruits and vegetables rounding out their menu choices. Not only are we getting all of these fresh flavors, but we're getting them locally too. Melissa had War Eagle grits, flour from War Eagle, mixed in with local sweet potatoes in a delicious sweet potato pancake. Perfect taste for Fall.
You can visit their facebook to see what special they are cooking up that day. With a charming, down-home atmosphere, and a fabulous fresh take on your favorites, it's easy to see why they have won several culinary rewards.
