Midtown Eats


Midtown Eats is a local foodscape, created by Rhodes College in partnership with Memphis Tilth, Edible Memphis, Vollintine-Evergreen Community Association, Caritas Village, Cooper Young Business Association, Crosstown Concourse, Binghampton Development Corporation, and the Overton Park Conservancy. This directory is funded by the Community Lift Grant, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Tennessee Department of Agriculture to increase local food access and to promote the local food economy in Midtown Memphis. This representation of the foodscape includes restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, farmers markets and community gardens.

The physical map (see pictures below) are located in walkable and bike-able areas in Midtown:

- Wiseacre on Broad Ave

- VECA welcome center on Jackson Ave

The Midtown Eats project is dedicated to Jack Bickerest, a beloved grower, artist, and vendor at the Overton Park Community Farmers Market. We are thankful for his passion and dedication to collaborative advocacy and vision for a more inclusive Memphis food landscape.
