My favorite business is:

Nashville Grown

Nashville Grown is Nashville's first food hub, preparing to launch in May 2012. With a network of urban farms and community gardens within an hour's drive of Nashville's center, Nashville Grown will aggregate and distribute sustainably-grown produce to local restaurants, grocery stores, and institutions. This will increase year-round, 24/7 access to local food, help existing farms grow, and enable new farms--even teeny tiny ones in the urban core--to thrive. www.nashvillegrown.org

        sooooooo close! 4th place is still amazing though. Be proud :)

        I cannot see how people could choose Journey to Bliss over Nashville Grown in this vote. That doesn't make logical sense.

        Don't get me wrong I love raw food. I love it from the garden. And I think the more we learn to garden the more raw we will eat.

        My stomach hurts with all the nuts and seeds from Journey to Bliss.

        I think the push forward is everyone gardening or using local farmers and eating seasonal.

        It was an easy vote for me.

        This sounds like a win-win-win-win solution; good for consumers, good for farmers, good for the environment, and good for Nashvillegrown.

        Local and locally source food is the key to healthier communities and cities. Nashville-Grown is a solution that deserves support .

        Hello - Nashville is a vibrant city in which public momentum is trending toward greater access to locally-sourced food. I would love to see the missing link from local growers to local eaters filled in, and I think Nashville-Grown is well-positioned to take on that role. Two thumbs up for Nashville-Grown!

        This is a great idea anywhere - I hope it spreads quickly.

        A terrific and long overdue idea for a community to have access to fresh, local produce.
