Celebrating the Appalachian Food Culture from Farm to Fork!

We connect residents of and visitors to the Appalachian region of southwest Virginia and northeast Tennessee to the vibrant and delicious food heritage of these mountains by highlighting the restaurants and businesses here that celebrate local foods.

Rooted in Appalachia celebrates our regional food culture as a total experience-from the farmers, farmers’ markets and independent food purveyors, to the cafes, bistros, restaurants, breweries, wineries and food-themed events that highlight our cultural heritage by using local ingredients and beverages. For our residents and our visitors, there are so many reasons to support this locally rooted food culture.

As the seasons progress and change, there is always a bounty to choose from!
