foodie b’eat: Winston-Salem’s Getting an Open Market

If you have trouble like me getting to the farmer’s market on Saturday, then you might enjoy what’s coming to Winston-Salem…in what is the up and coming-est part of town.

Winston Junction Market, an open-concept indoor market, will be located at 901 North Trade Street behind Earl’s.

The market will feature food and beverage vendors, artisans and a handful of farmers.  David Dalholt, who also owns Sunnyside Millworks and Sunnyside Mercantile, says when the owner of the building showed him the converted warehouse space, we wanted to turn it into something special.  “It’s such a cool spot. It got my wheels turning.” Since it’s hard for some families to get out the door to a farmers market on Saturday mornings, he wanted to take advantage of the lunch crowd. “Folks can come in, grab lunch, grab a beer and get a little shopping done.”

Dalholt wanted to control the vibe and the look of the space so he and his team are providing tables and custom signage. Vendors won’t event have to bring tables or signs. Menu boards will also be very visible in the event that if you’re waiting in line, you can read the menu easily as you wait.  And just so you know, Dalholt has a way with aesthetic. His tables and woodworking are incredible, so this place is going to look great. 

Patrons are welcome to come and just hang out. Seating will be provided on the patio on top and rows of seating are provided throughout the length of the market indoors.  You’ll be able to shop for food,  order something from vendor like Wine Merchants and Vin 205 Bistro, Lavender and Honey Kitchen, Golden Rule Kombucha, buy plants from House of Plants. You’ll be able to find artisanal products and a few farmers will be there as well.

Wanna go? Grand opening is Saturday, March 30th 11:30am-2:30pm. It will be open each Saturday with hopeful plans to extend hours in the future. 

I’ll be stopping by there tomorrow to get a closer look so more information to come! Until then, follow Winston Junction Market on Facebook for updated vendor announcements and future dates.

foodie b’eat: A New Concept by Chef Tim Grandinetti

And let me add…it’s about time!

Check out this press release from Chef Tim Grandinetti and his Rhubarb and Honey Hospitality Group…

Rhubarb & Honey Hospitality Group announces another GRANDinetti project:
Dr. Brownstone’s BBQ, a North Carolina BBQ Concept, opening Spring 2019.

Chef Timothy Grandinetti, of Spring House Restaurant, Kitchen & Bar, announces today that he will open Dr. Brownstone’s BBQ, Take Out & Catering; his take on “old-school” North Carolina BBQ, in the Spring of 2019. 

The 48-seat BBQ restaurant will be located alongside the Lowe’s Foods of Bermuda Run in the Kinderton Place Shopping Center on Highway 801 North, Advance, NC.  Just 10 miles from Downtown Winston-Salem – a short 15 minute drive;  and 30 miles from Statesville – a super easy drive down Highway 40.  Convenient to the vibrant communities of Clemmons, Lewisville, Bermuda Run, Kinderton Village, Oak Valley & Mocksville.

“The family-friendly ambiance allows for warm, lighthearted and genuine Southern hospitality,” said Grandinetti.  “Step right up to the counter for top notch NC-inspired BBQ, signature sandwiches, traditional sides & Chef-crafted desserts – take a chair and sit a spell in our comfortable dining room.”  “Dr. Brownstone’s BBQ is committed to creating delicious foods while striving to make the world a more wonderful place!  With a strong commitment to sustainability; all foods and beverages will be served with eco-friendly, compostable service ware.”  “And, like any good BBQ joint – an efficient, take-away program that will feature “Curb Service” for fast, convenient pick up.” 

A classically trained Chef, Grandinetti has a true passion for the art of BBQ!  He was invited to compete on the Food Network’s Chopped: BBQ Grill Masters.  Food Network traveled to the Arizona desert for a special five-part themed Chopped: Grill Masters Cooking Extravaganza. Over five-weeks based outside at the nostalgic Old Tucson Studios, Chef Grandinetti and 15 Grill Masters from around the country participated in this captivating Wild West showdown. Chopped favorites Amanda Freitag, Marc Murphy and Aarón Sánchez presided at the judging table, with astonishing mystery ingredients and tremendously talented BBQ competitors. 

Chef Tim Grandinetti (1).jpgAs for the menu, expect an homage to authentic North Carolina BBQ and FLAVOR BOMBS that will be ingredient-driven, highly thoughtful, intensely flavorful and expertly prepared.  Specializing in Pork, Chicken and Signature Sandwiches; the menu will be anchored by Award-Winning Pork Spare Ribs, Slow-Cooked Chicken with Alabama-Style White BBQ Sauce, Smoked Pork Roast Au Jus and Classic Carolina Pulled Pork.  Grandinetti will be cooking with Southern BBQ influences: ingredients will be responsibly sourced and recipes will be steeped in North Carolina tradition, Grandinetti’s BBQ travels, and modern culinary techniques.
