Trolley Stop Market Restaurant Review: Trolley Stop Market is the brainchild of farmers-turned-restaurateurs Jill and Keith Forrester, so it makes sense that as many of their offerings as possible are made from local meats and produce grown either on their nearby Arkansas farm or on others in the area. Pizzas with tender crusts are the star of the show. But don’t miss the plate lunches and dinners, which offer a meat (such as Neola Farms meatloaf or breaded pork loin) and two vegetable sides that on any given day could range from turnip greens or sweet potato casserole to purple hull peas and tomato salad. There’s a section of the menu dedicated to vegan and vegetarian items, and Trolley Stop even offers a vegan cheese pizza. Desserts feature such down-home treats as fruit cobblers and chess pie. Beer is the quaff of choice, with some Tennessee craft brews available. Bring your own wine if you wish for a small corkage fee. The restaurant doubles as a farmers market, where local produce and Memphis-made arts and crafts are the draws.
