FBA seeks ‘Tasty’ vendors

Planners for the third annual Taste of Farragut are issuing an open call to Farragut restaurants.

“The purpose of Taste of Farragut is to showcase the wonderful selections of restaurants within the town of Farragut limits. With an estimated 1,000 attendees, this will be an excellent way for restaurants — both old favorites and new — to give samples of their cuisine,” Robin Purvis of Farragut Business Alliance said.

This year, Taste of Farragut will be held from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 23, at the old Kroger off Kingston Pike, near Concord Road. The event features food samplings from Farragut restaurants, as well as wine and ready-to-drink cocktails and live entertainment.

Purvis said she was expecting Taste — which has attracted around 1,000 visitors each year — to be an even bigger event this year.

“The event has increased from 10 restaurants the first year to 18 restaurants last year and with 53 restaurants located in Farragut, the Farragut Business Alliance is hoping for 25 or more participating restaurants this year,” Purvis said.

There is no participation fee to food vendors, but all food a vendor provides is gratis to the event.

A 10-foot by 10-foot tent, tablecloth, chairs and ice will be provided to each vendor, with electricity available to those that will need it.

“The Farragut Business Alliance will work with media partners to advertise the event on WFIV, farragutpress and all other radio, TV and print media, at no charge to the participant,” Purvis said.

Each restaurant must complete and submit an application detailing what their needs are and what dish or dishes they wish to serve.  

Interested vendors can contact David Purvis, president of Farragut Business Alliance, at 865-599-1817, or at, by Aug. 30.

“Space will be limited, so sign up now and join in on this popular celebration of the wonderful restaurants located in Farragut,” Purvis said.

Admission tickets to Taste of Farragut will be $25 for adults for food and drinks; $20 for adults having food only; $10 for children 12 and under and free for children 6 and under.
