212 Market Restaurant will mark 22 years of serving locally-sourced food in downtown Chattanooga next Wednesday.
Sisters Sally and Susan Moses, along with their then-71-year-old mother Maggie, opened 212 Market Restaurant on Feb. 12, 1992. Right from the start, the Moses family was committed to using locally-grown ingredients, recycling, and serving great food.
Starting any business downtown in 1992 was a huge leap of faith, and hardly anyone outside of the Moses family thought the restaurant would last very long.
Twenty-two years later, Sally, Susan, and Maggie are all still going strong and serving great local food every day in a revitalized downtown.
Sally Moses said, “We have really enjoyed watching downtown Chattanooga change over the past few decades into a beautiful, vital gem of a city, and we are proud to have played a part in that renaissance. It’s a lot of fun to meet a whole new generation of diners who care where their food comes from and how it’s prepared.”
