A message from Craig

I have good news and bad news.  It is with a heavy heart that I have to tell everyone that we will no longer serve breakfast at the Atherton Mill Farmer’s Market.  After 4 years of commitment to the market, I received an e-mail from the market manager saying that we would no longer be needed at the there.   The motives for this decision still remain unclear, only that our attendance at the market was not consistent enough; though every single day that was not raining and the truck was not broken we were there.  We have been a part of the market since we opened our doors in 2011, and we stuck by the market when it was slow. We did not go to the market to make money, we would go to the market to support the vendors, support local food, and of course to see all the smiling faces of our Saturday morning regulars.  There is no sense in dwelling and I could lament on the matter for 2 pages, so I will get to the good, no …GREAT news!  We will be a part of a new market every Saturday at the corner of Wedgewood and Tyvola at Wedgewood Church.  The market will be small, however there are beautiful oak trees to sit under and have your breakfast.  We will be there the same time that we were normally at Atherton 9:00am-12:00pm.  Please come see us and support our new location, for many of you it is actually right in your neighborhood!  Stop and grab some breakfast on your way to Yorkmont Farmer’s Market or to Atherton Mill Farmer’s Market. The number 1 rule of shopping for food is to never shop hungry!   The address is:

4800 Wedgewood Drive

Charlotte, NC 28210

Tonight we will be at Sycamore Brewing as normal! The weather is getting nicer and the beer tastes just as nice as it always has! As mentioned above, tomorrow morning we will be serving breakfast at Wedgewood Church Market. We will also be at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. All of you loyal Saturday morning customers and friends do have a few other options to see us this weekend. If you are many of the lucky  who get to leave town for this holiday weekend, try to support local wherever you are going.

What’s his real name?

Did you know it’s Mr. T’s birthday? Good thing I listen to quality radio on the way to work that keeps me informed of these important details of the day. (Another important detail is that we will NOT be in the Duke building tomorrow. Sorry if I got your hopes up!)

We’ve got a full day ahead of us folks! Lunch at Innovation Park (7201 Hewitt Associates Dr) and then tonight we will be at BOTH Birdsong and Sycamore from 5p-9p. Birdsong will be releasing their small batch called “Susie Q”, a smoked IPA. And there will be live music going on at Sycamore. So be sure to hit one of them up…or both. Don’t be a fool or we may pity you.

What up Wednesday

Things are a bit different this week. So let me fill you in on our whereabouts for the next few days. (Side note: we missed you at Taco Day today! Our lot was closed due to speed street.)

We will be at Sycamore Brewing tonight.

Tomorrow we’ll be serving lunch at Innovation Park (university area) and then dinner at Birdsong AND Sycamore (live music…whaaa).

Friday we’ll be inside the Duke building (4th floor) for lunch and back to Sycamore for dinner.

Sorry if you’re a person that doesn’t like change, and we totally screwed up your lunch schedule uptown this week. We’ll be back to norm next week.

Come hang out at Sycamore tonight, or stop by and grab some dinner to go. What a nice surprise that would be for your fam or roomie!
