Nate Wilson / Weekly Fig
Nate moved to Chattanooga three years ago with our three small children, and fell in love with the town. He has been supporting our local farmers through his local CSA and wanted to do more to give back to them and Chattanooga. Weekly Fig was born out of a desire to save time for the things that mattered. He have always been part of the food scene, running a food co-op and getting real food out to the people without being a financial burden. His motto is that real food should be for all!
