Farm-to-Table Restaurants - Bakersfield, CA - Watson Realty

Bakersfield is located in a rich agricultural area, so it's no surprise that farm-to-table restaurants are popular destinations here. They're able to order a wide variety of produce and other locally and regionally grown or raised ingredients, making their dishes as fresh as possible.

Our agents recommend the following restaurants if you want to eat fresh around Bakersfield.

  • Locale Farm to Table Eatery - 1727 18th St., Bakersfield, CA 93301
    Located in downtown Bakersfield, Locale Farm to Table Eatery uses locally sourced, sustainable, and organic ingredients. Customer favorites include the Sweet Potato and Brussels Sprouts Bowl, a hearty bowl of sweet potatoes that's loaded with delicious toppings including applewood smoked bacon, an organic egg cooked over easy, and melted gouda and gruyere.

  • The 18hundred - 1800 Chester Ave., Bakersfield, CA 93301
    Housed in a building built in 1910, The 18hundred is surrounded by historic brick walls and still maintains its mosaic tile floors. The restaurant's food is American-inspired with a fresh and fun take on dishes. They're made with high-quality ingredients such as local and organic produce, grass-fed Angus beef, wild-caught fish, and hormone and antibiotic-free chicken.
