‘Visit Mississippi’ Lists Top 5 Mississippi Restaurants for Farm-to-Table Eating

The farm-to-table and local food movements have become national trends, and Mississippi restaurants are ahead of the game. Producing, delivering and serving local products in a way that showcases the food’s natural beauty has become common in almost every corner of the state. Here are some of our best suggestions for eating farm-to-table style:

Parlor Market, Jackson

1. Parlor Market – Jackson, Miss.
Found in the downtown area of Jackson, Parlor Market prides itself on offering locally farm products, providing patrons information each week on where the food was farmed. The restaurant was the brainchild of the late Craig Noone, who dreamed of creating a hot spot for inventive local fare, featuring a new spin on southern favorites. Diners can expect to find items like duck carbonara, Mississippi rabbit and gulf redfish.
