Large Crowd Enjoys 'Taste Of Greeneville' Food Fest

A full house of 300 guests enjoyed the samples of food and drink offered Tuesday evening by 23 local restaurants, caterers, and drink vendors at the 24th Annual "Taste of Greeneville," held at the General Morgan Inn.

More than 200 people were already waiting in line outside the General Morgan Inn ballroom by 6 p.m., when the doors opened.

Jann Mirkov, executive director of Main Street: Greeneville, said attendees who had been before were excited because they knew how good it was going to be, and those who were attending for the first time were excited because of what others had told them about the event.

The annual "tasting" is sponsored by Main Street: Greeneville and the General Federation of Women's Clubs of Tennessee Greeneville Woman's Club. Monies from both nonprofit entities will go right back into community projects.


According to Ann Van Buskirk, event chairman, "It was an incredible evening! The vendors were happy, the guests were happy -- it was great!

"We were pleased to have some members of the Morristown Federation Woman's Club in attendance at the event."

Leading the buffet line this year was Sarah Stokely, Miss Greene County, and she said, "This is a fantastic event -- I hope we can do something like this at home (Newport), and I really enjoyed talking with the guests as they were waiting in line. Everything was delicious, too."

Comments from guests leaving the event included such remarks as "This was the best one ever," "I am so full I could pop," "Wow, it can't get any better," and many, many more positive remarks.

Mirkov said, "We are so excited to get to showcase our restaurants and provide this opportunity. It's a good event for the customers, who get a large quantity of food for only $10, and the business people present get to talk to their potential customers."


This year for the first time the sponsors offered "to-go" boxes and many folks were pleased because of the amount of food offered.

As guests finished eating, they were asked to vote for their favorite vendor booths -- from the standpoint of food, and also decoration.

Winning this year's Savory Food Award and Best Display was Sunshine's Kitchen, on Bohannon Ave. They served chicken and dumplings.

Winning the Sweetest Food Award was Mountain View Bulk Foods, with a variety of cakes, including strawberry shortcake and some sweet cheese balls.
