Standard Foods objective is to reintroduce people to the food, farmers and artisanal production methods of our region. The South’s rich, agrarian history has been lost in the push for mass-production and cheaper, faster ways to bring products to the market. There is a small but burgeoning group of farmers and artisans who have gone back to the old methods – and those who never left. We will seek them out and give them a place to highlight their life’s work. The restaurant and market will showcase the unparalleled quality of their products.
